UNLEARN WHAT YOU’VE LEARNED
We ALL run scripts. What I mean by that is that we all have a certain set of rules and dialogue that we use when connecting with others in our everyday relationships. When we run a script and aren’t REALLY in the moment with the person we’re with, it keeps us from really connecting with that person. For instance, I might have a certain script that I might run when dealing with my teenage son. When we’re dealing with an issue, instead of really listening to him, I am running the script in my head. I might be thinking:
“ A dad would say this in this situation.”
“ A dad would DO this in this situation.”
“ Ward Cleaver wouldn’t have done it this way.”
WE ALL RUN SCRIPTS BUT IT KEEPS US FROM CONNECTING WITH THE PEOPLE WE ARE WITH!
If you want to quit running the script, listen and LEARN more about the people you are with so you can better connect with, motivate, and get more done, bring Chip in!
