Don’t you admire people with leadership skills who have a busy life they have a handle on?

Don’t get this misconstrued though with ‘you’re too busy to even have a friendship (or any type of relationship).’

You are busy enough to be firm on what times you are available to fit them in. At the end of the day, everyone likes to be a priority! But they do not like being the first priority always.

They would want to see you assertive and establishing things. Leadership skills are essential. It shows that you have ‘status’ and know where you are heading in your life. And you are proactive in going after and conquering what you want.

And when you have a busy schedule, this also shows you and others that your life is of value to yourself. You have built for yourself, and they would want to see more about this; it would be intriguing to anyone.

You’re full of knowledge

For most people, there is no bigger attraction (at least based on my experience) than meeting someone who they can learn from — who can give them mental stimulation.

By mental stimulation I mean they can go back and forth with you, and you challenge them to learn more. But you can only go back and forth with them (smoothly)if you get what they are saying. And you get what they’re saying by listening to them. Not hearing them. Not being mentally occupied by thinking of what clever thing to say next.
