The battle against the sound bite and having conversations that matter.
I don’t intend to start doing long drawn out blogs in case you are wondering. As I am reflecting on my real intention of having more conversations, particularly old school face-to-face conversations, that matter it is amazing how many people don’t know how to communicate any more. Myself included at times, although I have historically been “too direct,” straight to the point and not much foreplay. You know, a what’s the point kinda gal. Why are we talking? It makes it seem as if I don’t enjoy talking, but I really do if it is meaningful dialogue. It doesn’t have to be a long conversation. It doesn’t have to be PC. It doesn’t have to be sensationalized. (drama filled). I would like to believe deep down others feel the same way. Maybe many of us are just trapped into the scripted superficial level of thinking and doing.
Anyway, I need to break free. Join me.
