It seems to me that all the social media products, ipods, text messaging, etc. in the world have created a culture of non personal contact. When our son Zach-Jacob (Z-J) was young and diagnosed on the autism spectrum, countless professionals stressed the importance of teaching him "eye contact." To this day, we will use that as a prompt when we want to get his (or anyone's) attention. The truth is, many of us can go through an entire day without eye contacting anyone. This diminishes the "I impact" you and I can have on each other and other people. I happen to love the time effectiveness of email. So many people can be reached in one click! But we were made to interact in the world with all our senses. I'd rather look you in the eye than in your I-phone. I'm going to focus on doing that more, even if I'm talking to a stranger at the bus stop, a cashier, whoever, while plugged in. Z-J does that quite well now. So, now who needs the prompting? What do you think about your own I Impact?
