In any given day have you ever tracked the conversations you have had with others and tried to summarize them? What constitutes a good day of conversation? Try, over the next  few days to summarize the conversations you have with the people you interact with on a daily basis. Do the conversations when they are summarized have  a positive focus or inconsequential or worse yet negative.

I read many years ago that the average teen interacted with the meaningful adults in their life for less than half an hour a week and that for the conversation was negative or prescriptive. I wonder how, if we were asked to summarize our interactions with people over a period would find that the interactions were mostly superficial.

I thought of this as I was reading the information that was posted on face book walls I have read recently. Do we need to have meaningful conversations to stay close or do we need conversations that just connect us to the other people?

If a person starts to isolate themselves from others is that a warning sign for their friends and if so what should they do about this?

Ideas, interactions and connections are important to us at any time of the year but as we move into the holiday season, they are more important. Please pay attention to how you interact with people and try tracking your conversations to see if you are bringing positive attitude to others
