When people are talking about a shared commitment that they genuinely care about, you can see it. Their eyes shine.
So it’s amazing what a high tolerance we’ve developed for dull, glazed-over stares in our meetings and activities at work. It’s as if we’re treating ourselves and others as machines… and that caring doesn’t come into it. Perhaps that’s exactly what we are doing.
Human beings are so full of life. It’s a tragedy that we settle so easily for working in a way that’s such a dull facsimile of it.
