As I wrap up my final days at work I can’t help but notice: I’m less consulted but more listened to.
This is not a new phenomenon. You attract people through non-neediness and, as you leave, people start to sense you don’t need them and they don’t need you.
Interactions become more authentic and deeper. Any time spent with someone must meant you enjoy their company as all alternative motivations are null and void.
It’s authentic, fun and liberating.
