It is March 2020 and we are in the midst of one of the worst pandemics in modern times.
The world has changed forever, once again.
And right now
Schools are closed.
Mosques, synagogues, and churches are closed.
Restaurants, concerts, and museums, all closed.
However, we remain open. Humans, people, our souls.
Our thoughts, experiences, and histories continue.
And most importantly, our conversations.
So, let’s begin with conversations.
Seth Godin said…
A conversation involves listening and talking. A conversation involves a perception of openness and access and humanity on both sides.
People hate meetings but they don’t hate conversations.
People might dislike education, but everyone likes learning.
If you’re trapped in a room of fifty people and the organizer says, “let’s go around the room and have everyone introduce themselves,” you know you’re in for an hour of unhappiness. That’s because no one is listening and everyone is nervously waiting for their turn to talk.
But if you’re in a conversation, you have to listen to the other person. Because if you don’t, you won’t know what to say when it’s your turn to talk.
Conversations reset the power and compliance dynamic because conversations enable us to be heard.
Conversations generate their own interest because after you speak your piece, you’re probably very focused on what someone is going to say in response.
You don’t have to have a conversation, but if you choose to have one, go all in and actually have one.
Today, I introduce the podcast titled “Conversations”.
Let’s learn together. Let’s connect.
And let’s create Conversations.
