Welcome to this edition of the Weekly Circle—where we start the week with a few ideas that make us think.
This week, we’re thinking about Eye Contact. American Philosopher, William James, put it best:
We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface, but connected in the deep.
Our eyes play a huge role in how we connect with other people, whether they are the barista in the cafe, a fellow subway rider or a co-worker. Sharing this power of mutual acknowledgment is the underlying power for real genuine human-to-human connection.
We'd love to hear from you!
Do you think you have strong eye contact? Is it something you actively think about and are mindful of?
