One of the best ways to be aware of where you are going and what you are doing is to pay attention to your body and your surroundings.

A passive communicator is a person who thinks about things only mentally. They don’t act on their thoughts or beliefs; they don’t talk. They just sit there, watching, waiting. They are a natural fit for the online world and its growing reliance on the latest technology, like the iPhone.

A passive communicator is not, in itself, a bad thing. They are a valuable asset when you have to deal with people who do not want to engage with you.

We may think of a passive communicator as someone who only thinks about the phone, but this is a bit of a misnomer. You can be a passive communicator when your goal is to simply make yourself more useful to the people you’re communicating with. A passive communicator doesn’t have any agenda, no need to know your future, and can just sit there until they are called upon.

We have a list of passive communicators, but it is a little long so I have put the most important ones at the top. We call these people “passive communicators” because they use the same way we use our phone: it’s a bit like a Bluetooth headset. They are just good at what they do and don’t need to think about anything but making themselves useful to their target.

We call it the “Silent Phone” because when our phone rings it makes a loud noise and then we know it’s safe to answer it. But because it is a Bluetooth headset we don’t have to tell it to ring. Our calls are usually silent but we can tell if we are being tracked, if something important is happening nearby, etc.

You can use Bluetooth to see if you’re being tracked. If you’re being tracked we can tell you that. We can tell if someone is following you. We can tell if it is raining outside. We can tell if it is sunny. We can tell if your phone is locked. We can tell if your phone is ringing.

But it’s not just the usual “I’m getting an alert about a possible threat.” That’s about it. And our “not knowing what to do” is part of what makes the passive communicators so great. We don’t need to know how to do anything. We can just tell them to send our thoughts, feelings, and intentions to them. They know it just isn’t safe to say anything.

Wow! I can't believe we finally got to meet in person. You probably remember me from class or an event, and that's why this profile is so interesting - it traces my journey from student-athlete at the University of California Davis into a successful entrepreneur with multiple ventures under her belt by age 25
