Can we talk? There is so much to talk about today, but, do we really want to talk about it? And, do we know how to talk about it? Most people I know, want to maintain the status quo, and not rock the proverbial apple cart. I will often find myself becoming more aggressive and start lobbing subjective thoughts or opinions into conversations. It’s a form of play for me, and I enjoy it. I like the intellectual engagement and sharing of ideas, which can be profoundly interesting and educational. It can also be destructive and hurtful, depending on the people and the environment. The key for me to a successful engagement is being open to listen to other viewpoints. In my experience, most of the discussions that have failed are ones where one or both parties were not able to actively engage in listening to each other. The need to be right, a form of self preservation.
Being right has become such a monumental thing in our world, that I’m not sure we’re going to overcome it, I see it everywhere.
