What do you see when you look with ‘soft’ eyes?
Soft eyes correlate with a more relaxed focus,
rather than tunnel vision toward a specific outcome or argument it broadens your vision.
Some of the potential gifts:
Allows you to see potential roadblocks
Creates openings for alternative ideas or even better paths
Provides the lens of seeing beyond the apparent or obvious
Makes you approachable
