Really Being There

What are you doing in the next 30 minutes? And then the next? And the next?

Some of us - guilty party here - are thinking so many chess moves ahead that our view of the immediate is clouded. How many conversations, meetings, and events do we partially attend?

No wonder we look back at periods of our life and recall so little. We weren't really there. There is a well-known Hollywood expression about actors who are so disengaged that they are said to "phone in their parts."

Are there any parts you're phoning in?.
