June 28 2016 As far as I can tell
As far as I can tell, what I can tell doesn’t really go very far–not as far as I’d like it, at least as far as I can tell.
As you may have noticed, there’s lots of telling going on and what is being told is often very telling.
How effective is telling and once you’ve been told, how can you tell if what has been told has been received , acted upon, taken to heart or even…… retold? It’s hard to tell.
As far as I can tell, in most conversations there’s lots more telling than listening–at least that’s what’s going on in my mind and with most of the people I talk with. As a result communication starts with telling and if the message isn’t received can readily escalate to yelling.
In an effort to ward off the yelling, we’ll see if we can tell if telling is the best way to get our point across. So once again, explore how to tell what truly makes a difference in our relationship to life.
It will be very telling what we come up with. At least, as far as I can tell.
