Yeah I’m always thinking Future. Any contact I have with younger generations (which is often ’cause I’m 43 and many of the ppl I know online are younger – comes with the Timeline thing) – I keep that in mind.
I ask myself, “What could I say that might help today or in the future?” so I try to stay on my toes with a person’s future in mind. I don’t succeed as much as I’d like, but I succeed more than I expect. Really listening with all ears open seems to be key.
But man, I still got a lot more learning to do than teaching. I love every minute of it.
