Test Your Ability To Connect With Others

I came across an amazing quote by Lisa Kirk a few days ago. It reads: A gossip is one who talks to you about others; a bore is one who talks to you about himself; and a brilliant conversationalist is one who talks to you about yourself.

So yesterday I worked harder than normal to talk to others about themselves and limit talking about myself or other people. While I knew the outcome, it was still refreshing to see people literally "light up" as they became the center of attention.

Spend some time today working hard to be a conversationalist... you might just discover how interesting and helpful other people can be.
