    TSFP 18 | Pay Attention To Those Around You

    TSFP 18 | Pay Attention To Those Around You

    Welcome to the Success Finder Podcast! One of the projects that I'm a part of has a seven-year-old as its lead consultant. In this episode, let's talk about the importance of paying attention to the world around us and to the people in it, regardless of their age.
    [00:00 – 00:22] Some notes I made a few months ago
    Something that happened back in January of this year
    I found my notes about that experience about how we sometimes miss what's right in front of us and I've decided I wanted to share it with you today

    [00:23 - 02: 16] Missing what's right in front of us
    I'm working on a project where our lead consultant is a seven-year-old.
    Our amazing lead consultant talked about paying attention to our surroundings and other people's emotions and their surroundings.
    He plays Mario Kart and when someone bought him a big stuffed toy of Shy Guy as a gift, I ended up having to bring it on the plane to bring home to him.

    [02:17 - 3:13] Moral of the story
    Learn to listen to people, no matter what their age is.
    And of course, pay attention to your surroundings.

    TSFP 17 | Flow State with Brandon Straza

    TSFP 17 | Flow State with Brandon Straza

    Welcome to the Success Finder Podcast! This morning I was in a flow state, or at least what I call a flow state. Then, ten to fifteen minutes later, something happened that made me realize that two people in a conversation can be in different states. Let's talk about it and what it could potentially mean for you when you are delivering your message.
    [00:00 – 01:02] Something That Happened To Me This Morning
    I felt like I was in a flow state
    An app called https://www.focusatwill.com/ (Focus@Will)

    [01:03 – 02:21] A Flow State
    I needed something to cut out the noise and just start flowing.
    My visual state vs my audio state
    I heard the word "eyebrows" but I thought the person I was talking to said "eyelashes."

    [02:22 – 03:18] Something To Think About
    Are the people you're talking to in a visual state or in an audio state?
    Why you should not be upset when you feel they're not paying attention to you

    Tweetable Quotes:
    "Don't be upset when someone seems like they're not paying attention to you. They just might not be in the same state that you're trying to deliver to them." -Brandon Straza
