The Rhythm of Engagement

Rhythm

There’s a rhythm of life that calls for each of us to feel and listen to it. Its in the footsteps we take, the handshakes we share, the kisses and hugs, the ways we type and write, and definitely in our breathing.

Its the rhythm of engagement.

Engagement, which is defined as the sustained connections we experience throughout our lives,  happens all around us all of the time. Every single one of us is engaged right now.

There are some people who are not engaged in things they want to be, or in ways we want them to be. They include:

  • Out-of-touch community workers
  • Disengaged students
  • Disconnected neighbors
  • Drifting romantic partners
  • Dispassionate workers
  • Puzzled retirees
  • Low performing salespeople
  • New entrepreneurs

In reality, everyone can benefit from feeling the rhythm of engagement in their lives. The folks above may specifically want to reconnect with the rhythm; you might too. That’s what I am working on providing next!

Share your thoughts below and ask questions if you want to learn more now, or simply wait for the coming weeks to see this next project to reveal itself. Engaging the disengaged is my goal; what’s yours?!?
