Being present is more than just being there

So often we are surrounded by people – family, friends, co-workers, patients – but we’re not really there. Our thoughts are elsewhere, or buried in electronics.

Yet being present is one of the most powerful things you can do, in business and in life.

Being present is an artform. Its importance cannot be over emphasized.

People can tell when you are with them physically, mentally and emotionally. That’s especially true for our patients. It’s that sense of presence that builds trust and creates long-term relationships.

Take the responsibility seriously to focus on the people you are with.
