The majority of our compulsive behaviours are unconscious. But the people who love us don’t see that.

They try to match our activity at first, then they abandon that strategy and slow their pace in the hope we will match them.

That’s when the problems and the conversations start, but we don’t hear them, we are not present because we are oblivious to it all.

We have become so focused on the business goal that life outside the office has become irrelevant.

Take a step back to listen and recognise that these people in your life want the best for you and be more present.

It will pay greater dividends in the long run.
