You sit and write and create. And you join various websites as you create your own sometimes. Joining in the hope that something special will happen. Well those special things are not going anywhere, most of them I am sure you will find are still there. You should be speaking on average about three hours everyday either about your goals and plans or have curiousity about other peoples.
Talking is something since computers and communications that it is on the rise, we have been blessed with various ways of communicating opening your mouth is a blessing, sign language again is something people learn when they have the ability to communicate gone. The TV landscape honours these things but does not always create enough participation. Infact some television shows merely create more dissonance. TV shows like soaps bring out what people think and believe. During hard times most of this I imagine is not very positive, prejudging anyone or anything is not good, especially when you are around people you love. TV is for entertainment, it is right to laugh when funny things happen, but is it right to laugh when people of power on the telly do absalutely the wrong thing. Watching whilst waiting for a laugh or reacting when something really silly happens can show things that are not necessarily good. Many people who market online have expressed the need to take the telly out the equation. When I speak to friends children they express many likes and quickly share how they communicate throughout the day. From favourite toys that open an imaginery world of creativity, to a game of cards that represent the players in a game to IPads and games to play on these hand held devices. Media and television enrich so many lives but I feel if we participate rather than passively enjoy there is a danger of saying and getting involved in conversations that will neither serve yourself or enrich the friendships around you.
So do we have to make the decision to passively enjoy the amazing creativity of televsion and wait around for the nosiy ads to question the television. Should we express and opinion about fiction that happens in soaps to those around us. I think not and I maybe wrong. Some may say this type of conversation reveals more about people than they are actually aware. The reason for this I guess is becuase I am so used to having a telly in the background keeping me company. But when you know the story and know more about the characters and how un civilised they are bearing in mind its only a story, does you opinion matter either way?
One thing I know now is three overs everyday with friends or even people you do not know, it does perhaps not even have to be a conversation orally, typing is fine. Engaging in small talk for many people I know is very difficult, I am not sure if this is what I am reccomending. Three hours of small talk and hows your father…
Many cultures have conversations embedded to a tea, for one hour some countries spend asking about the family, the goats the house, the health, the goals and dreams. The last two are the ones I wishing to cultivate but without the laughter there would be less of focus. O I can see now how people read into other peoples sense of humour.
Please understand this, when you are laughing you are learning, yes I really beleive that. I know, I know not everybody do. Its great to understand the different types of people out there. The colour coding thing really helped for a time, although I could never remember if I was a high or low blue or a green or who was red and what colours best worked out. The things I speak of are mearly the fruits of |ECademy by Thomas and Penny Power, I liked all of what they taught, how they taught and the generosity in the way they taught it. That’s the great thing about getting out the house and talking to people. Never underestimate the power of getting out there and opening up to building new relationships, sharing goals and visions, complimenting people on their strengths and having a laugh about those crazy weaknesses. Well Ecademy is changing, Thomas and Penny have changed hands after thirteen or more years they have handed the ropes to someone else. Look out for more quotes from the author of the art of war and for gods sake don’t be put of by building relationships and see if you can have conversations for three hours everyday.
