Today's guest on The Successful Pitch is Isaac Lidsky, the author of "Eyes Wide Open." Isaac went blind at the age of 25. It was a slow process when he was in his late teens so he had time to get used to the idea. At first, he thought it was going to be a very sad and small life, but he said, "You know what? I might have lost my sight, but not my vision for what I want my life to be." He really has great insights into the importance of combining nonverbal cues with verbal cues, so that people really communicate clearly.
And, he said, "You need to take full responsibility for your own definition of success, and if you're doing something that isn't making you happy, don't let other people tell you have to stay doing that very thing." He leads a life that his eyes are wide open, his heart is wide open, and he shares tips with us on how we can have our ears wide open, and even learn to listen like you speed read. Enjoy the episode.
