We have all sat through some roll calls in our life, and the more formal authority figures sometimes required us to respond, “present.”
What did you mean when you answered? Did you mean that you were fully there, or did you mean that you were merely physically in the room?
For most of us, we meant we were physically there, but that was about it.
Is that true for you during staff meetings and lunches with friends? Is it sometimes true in your marriage or with your children?
It is so easy these days to be physically present, but mentally and emotionally distracted. Of all the shortages we have in our world, we are not suffering a shortage for distraction.
