Power of Conversations, Power of Learning World I love you, truly love you...I have had the best day interviewing people for the podcast (Watch out for an interview with a business psychologist, Alison Hardingham on conversations and with Bob Burg on The Laws of the Go Giver over the next few weeks...) My mind feels inspired, feels full of ideas...why? because these people were beacons of how important giving is, in relation to the art of inspirational leadership....some thoughts Is life really a learning event or an unlearning event...unlearning all the bad habits that we pick up during our life? Conversations work when you want to learn from the other person, not teach or inform the other person No one can waste your time. Only you can waste your time. The most valuable gift you have to offer is you. How speaking to people - really listening to what they are saying - expands your mind...it is like a personal mind massage. Social media is not about merely "joining the conversation"...it is about listening then adding value to the conversation. The actual price relates to the tangible, the perceived value relates to the intangible. When you receive graciously, you are indeed giving...giving respect to the other person, giving the chance for other people to create value. Don't underestimate the power of receiving. My personal goal each day is to try and fill another brain cell - I find it a challenge to think that we only use 5% or less of our brain...I hate wastage so I want to fill it with as many experiences, events, emotions, information as possible. Learning to the brain is the ultimate personal training system...turning muscle into real life experiences
