Conversations carry several layers, gentle, growth modicum and respect for distinctly different viewpoints as we are carried into a mecca of learning from each other. The mooted thought: Real conversations during lockdown with near and dear ones breeding productivity and growth arena minus prejudices or ego mustn’t be lost. One thing I have learned overtime on the importance to delete or avoid small talks with people gaslighting and imposing hard lining perspective. Many do that and shut, shun or avoid such things often lingering on the R for religion, bigotry, or whatever massages the ego trip.
Sitting at home is no excuse not to nurture great conversations with people who matter and already the digital world has rendered our lives real. The digital world we opened for seminars, workshops, and discussions, exploring platforms such as Google Duo, Zoom and Lifesize pushed the secret drawer wide to make every dialogue worth. Friendship carved with strangers and bonding over everything. The year 2020 will be remembered as the year of digital seeping our lives when none did. It makes for an interesting reflection on conversation cherishing simple relationships where there is no place for toxic.
A silver lining over the dark cloud is about making our friendships real and a world shrinking when in the past we took everything for granted. Conversations are becoming gentle, unique and simple-sweet at the altar of sweet-sour. Dinner time conversation with parents matters and remember explaining to mom what Fin-Tech means. Simply put, the bank is on the mobile meaning finance and technology. Easy lunch or dinner time for quality conversations.
A new world has unfolded and learning how to make conversations that were amiss brighter in triggering a tiny spark. Reinventing not just professionally and in business but from an individual point of view in chatting online at a simple download click. It will become more relevant for us and the way we interact with people will be significantly altered. A habit of making it a weekly affair speaking with our friends and parents on video building constructive, removing the scope for negativity.
It can about any mundane things, right from sports to books or funny tales in the closet and lockdown series, fun things done, rainbow, love or dating in our new life. Smear the online conversation with positive colors and diversity with friends beyond Whatsapp fake university. Conflict breeds negativity. Take the interaction off social media networking to make it digitally personal. Limitless boundaries make effective conversation in keeping the online etiquette alive.
We are hardwired for time and the world we are living now is making every moment count. Hard press the stop button for conversation needs no value judgment. A slow moment makes us human and takes time to articulate views. Conversations are no junk food or filter coffee. A sinking feeling that calls for no harrowing experience. Slow pause works a lot in disagreement. Let the hyper state evaporate pretty much like food metabolism. Take the plunge in chatting for the tomorrow lies in the past.
A new sun has set in to wager war against the dark. Digital bears no limit and comeuppance discussing and dissecting ideas, making it novel. The intricacies and deeply layered complexities have no place. Who says the digital media cannot wait! We have mastered a falsely claimed planet about not having time for anyone. The sole purpose of this online world whistles to simplification of the so-called hard concepts keeping fellow humans away. Educate people alien to its wonders, pretty much like the conversations we have. Include everyone in the chat and not hesitate in walking to a stranger, making them comfortable. The purpose of a chat is education. Just imagine how empowered we were the last time somebody made us feel important. Return and pass the karma to everyone willing in listening the signs.
Conversations need not be long but what matters is quality time, pretty much like this Facebook status. I am learning to make things simple and reach out to people not getting the A-Z or those so-called mind-blowing concepts eluding fellow humans. Line up for several online courses that will help me as the medium to teach people surrounding me, Mom, friends or plain strangers. Next, I shall teach about video calls on Whatsapp or otherwise during food times. Our race against time, anyone. Reclaim our conversations.
