True. I have been reading a lot about making conversations. Focused attention is something I had read about, but the way you put it is really nice. It is highly necessary to “focus” on a person while making a conversation. Something that I think you missed is what one can do after the conversation is over. E.g., follow up about what you talked about. I talk to very few people on a daily basis. But, those conversations are deep and meaningful. If someone tells me they had a bad day, I ask them if they are feeling better (in context to the last conversation) the next time we talk. I think I connect better with people and they connect with me better this way. They feel more comfortable around me, and above all, I like it.
I am looking forward to reading your other articles. Great job ☺
