Yes, I said it. Talking shit. You know, gossip, half-truths and outright lies! Talking shit.
Has it happened to you?
Or are YOU guilty?
Now, I’m just sayin’. It may start out as seemingly innocent conversation but before you know it you’re racing down that highway to gossip hell.
“You’re not going to believe what I just heard. Did you hear about so and so and what they’ve been doing?”
Don’t go there.
“She told me that he started the whole thing.”
Don’t take that bait.
“And if that weren’t enough, then she said…”
Yes, that’s right-about face. Turn and politely walk away. Put in your earbuds and enjoy some music. It will get you much, much further and in the end make you feel much, much better!
My advice (and since you DIDN’T ask for it I am more than happy to share) is don’t engage in those kinds of conversation. Move forward. Or if you must talk about other people please accentuate the positive!
Reach out to me and start the conversation with this question:
“Hey, CK, how can I help you help me?”
I’m glad you asked.
Let’s take nine minutes and see if I can help you be the best you that you can possibly be.
Here’s an easy first step to get you moving in the right direction. My Twenty Questions for creatives. Go on. Click and get started. Have some fun with it and let’s assess where you are and what steps you should take next.
Like I always say “A positive attitude may not solve all your problems but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.”
