Anticipate the future by observing patterns from the past.
- Recurring topics of conversation?
- Repeated frustrations?
- Consistent language?
- Nagging fears? Fear invites foresight.
- Points of satisfaction and fulfillment?
Point out patterns you notice. We tend to get lost in the weeds. People may not realize their patterns. When you say, I notice that you frequently talk about relationships, you tell people they matter.
Others value you, when you anticipate their challenges and opportunities.
