Just the Facts

I had another Broken Record conversation with my son this evening. I was hasty and a little harsh. During our conversation, my son asked me a question that gave me pause. He basically asked me What problem are we trying to solve?

He used one of my favorite tactics. That question really gives all parties in a discussion a chance to pause, and turn down whatever heat is being generated due to miscommunication. It also gives all the parties a chance to align to move forward.

I’m starting to better understand my children’s strengths.

Seems like my son is very fact and detail driven. Perhaps I am more emotionally driven. Maybe I want to tell a story too much or prove a point to impart wisdom. He just wants facts.

The next time we spin the broken record, I’ll just deliver the facts, and we will see where it goes.

Up next Dude, where’s my car? By the end of the day, I tend to forget where I parked my car in the morning. I park in one of several locations when I go into the office. None are Get to know a furnace. This week has been depressing. In my opinion: We’re not talking about Race as we should be. We’re not talking about guns as we should be. Dave Pell
