so i am always behind it seems. i am behind at work, i am behind at things i have to do at home, i am behind on my goals, and i have not talked to one person i dont know well every day.
thats the key.
i am not good at managing my time..
“if” i managed my time better, i would have more time to talk to people. is that true or is that an excuse?
today, went bowling with jennifer for w’s birthday. i only knew 3 people there… w, j, and z. this guy, mark, he went up to me and is like.. so… you are from pakistan… what do you think of everything going on?
this guy made the effort.. to talk to me.. about me.. i talked to him.. had a good conversation…... told him to watch charlie wilsons war.. but i didnt get to know him at all.. i know he works with w.. so does his wife.. he is married.. but thats all.
i need to learn to ask people questions so i can get to know them… damnit.. i need to practice these questions.
overall, i had a good night.
went to mo’s today afterwork and hung out with m, s, a, and l. found out a few things:
s – she used to dance and loved it.
s – she makes a great meatball and spahghetti
e – his show is greys anatomy
e – has a mexican band out of autin he really likes
e – has a favorite chef in chitown with great mexican food
didnt learn anything new about a, m, or l.
need to understand more discovery questions on how to get to know more about people. not good at this at all.. i am great talking about myself but i dont know much about others.
i talked to 3 employees today and i got the following:
-planning a road trip from baltimore to (crap i forgot the other part)
-never been to washington d.c.
-possibly going on a cruise this winter. carribean
-didnt get anything out of this person
then talked to the gym trainier
-went to school at.. stevenspoint
-moved to live with aunt and uncle near elm grove
-didnt do anything for nye
i am not shy.. lol.. none the least.. i just dont know what to talk about sometimes.. or what to say.. or sometimes i just dont like talking to people.. unless it has something to do with what i want.. that selfish i know.. even stuck up. i am trying to break that habit.
check this out… ready?
how did you bring in the new year?
what do you plan on doing this year? are you taking any vacations?
ok.. this is a start
my answers to this are..
i brought it in with the wifey.. and i plan on going on a cruise.
this is a start.
i am going to find a couple people tomorrow and talk to them.
i want 365 conversations this year damnit.
holy shit.. i know im not stuck up.. but i just done like “talking” to people unless it serves a self purpose. i guess its ok.. but its not right.. i dont think..?
i am always busy at work.. and i am always running from one place to the next.. i dont really make time to talk to
people.. but maybe this inspires me..
