Talk to the Eye

Just one

Looking at a phone screen to text is easy. Speaking directly to strangers at your first job can be hard.

Try this:

  1. Look at them, directly into ONE EYE long enough to note their eye color to yourself. (Don’t say it out loud. That’s creepy.)
  2. Then you can break eye contact if you need to, but look back at that ONE EYE when you talk.
