Who Would You Interview?

I'm sure you've seen or heard interviews where the subject is asked, "If you could interview one person, who would it be?" Answers such as, "Jesus, Gandhi, Hitler, etc." are not uncommon.

I’ll bet there is someone, right now, who wants to interview YOU! Yes, that’s right; there may very well be an individual out there who, if asked that question, would pick you. Why you might ask; because you may very well be the center of their world. That one person out there may simply desire time with you. They may come in the form of a parent, child, friend, partner, or fellow coworker who just happens to think your time is important enough to desire.

Now don’t get me wrong, it’s all well and good to desire a conversation with a famous (or infamous as the case may be) individual. But really, let’s be honest, how many opportunities do we miss to bless or impact people because we are either too busy or don’t realize the gift inside us that we have to give them?

Do you have time today to be interviewed? To sit with a loved one or stand with a friend? What would it take to make you realize how much that child looks up to you, simply wanting the approval of your time? How often have you walked by a junior level employee struggling to learn a new task you were an expert in? Better yet, when was the last time you walked with (and listened to) your partner as they said, “I just don’t think you realize how lucky I feel to be by your side.”

Today, why not schedule that interview? Your “public” is waiting!
