30sec Tip: Don’t Try to Read Other People’s Minds

donot try to read other people mind

    Don’t try to read other people’s minds.  Don’t make other people try to read yours.  Communicate.

    People sure love to talk, but what they don’t love so much is to converse; to dialog; to actually communicate. Folks are mesmerized by the sound of their own voices, and they like to interrupt and talk over each other. If they are polite, they may merely wait for their turn to talk, but talking becomes the only objective.

    What about you? Are your dialogues merely parallel monologues?

    Granted, it takes two to tango: if your fellow conversationalist is solely interested in telling things to you or saying things at you, you may have your work cut out for you to have an actual conversation. How can you make it happen?
