I know people who talk a lot but never say anything.
I love conversation, but I get bored quickly with small talk. I’d much rather have an engaging conversation. A conversation that opens my eyes to something I’d never considered before. A conversation that builds a connection with the other person. An inspiring conversation. Or a respectful conversation with someone I disagree with, so that I can challenge their thinking and they can challenge mine.
Conversations are doorways to new thoughts, new decisions & new actions.
