I’m not much into food presentation. I have a rule – it should taste better than it looks.
The same could be said of people. Everyone should be more interesting than they look.
We spend vast amounts of time, money & energy attending to our appearance. Yet often the people who spend the most effort working on their abs or make-up are the dullest people to talk to.
The best thing about people is their personalities. It’s what keeps friends coming back for more.
An attractive yet dull person wears thin very quickly.
Take the resources you put into your appearance and use them to improve your personality. Make time for reading books. Put effort into trying creative pursuits. Spend money on your hobbies.
Then when you end up in a conversation, you’ll have something more interesting to talk about than your shoes.
Try our blind taste test – if the people you talk to were blind then would they still want to talk to you? Would your appearance make any difference? What would enhance the conversation?
Your appearance can be an expression of your personality, especially when you buck fashion trends and dress in a way that is truly you. But after that first impression is made, you’ll need to reveal something more significant.
Engaging in interesting conversations has exponential rewards. By taking what you’ve heard in other conversations, you can feed them into your current & future conversations.
Sometimes improving your relationship is as simple as asking.
Do you act like the world has it in for you? Is every little thing that goes wrong a sign that the universe is conspiring you?
We share an easy method for getting people to tell you about themselves.
Why is frequent conversation so necessary for a relationship? And what are the consequences of ignoring it?
Impacting the world starts by impacting those around us. What are the practical ways we do this every day?
How do you impact the world? What gives your life meaning & purpose? How can you make your mark?
We tend to spend more time with our workmates than anyone else. Annoying habits can creep in easily. How can you go from being a potentially irritating co-worker to being a friend?
Are you forgetting to share your life with the one you share your life with?
Does sarcasm enchance a conversation or is it detrimental?
While Google is often handy, in the course of our social conversations it can take something away.
