Look Up: leaving distractions behind and actually connecting

“When you look down

You don’t see the chances you miss

Look up from your phone

Shut down the displays

We have a finite existence

A set number of days

Don’t give into the life

Where you follow the hype

Give people your love

Don’t give them your like

Disconnect from the need

To be heard and defined

Go out into the world

And leave distractions behind”



Today’s Zero to Hero assignment was to create a post using a different format than usual. And in case nobody posted this viral video on your Facebook news feed, I thought I’d share. It’s only 5 minutes, has a great message, and is easy listening thanks to the British speaker. Listen to every word, though, and give it some thought. A great challenge for a “connected” world.
