This is a quick post to summarize what I learned between 1/1/2017 to 1/8/2017.

Quick Introduction:

No Phone for 30 days. Instead of staring at my phone I will stare at other people and other people’s phone. This is for me to improve my confidence, listening and people skills. I’m going to master the art of small talk.

What I learned this week:

I will try my best to summarize all the events and good gossip I’ve noticed from my observation. I’ll keep the list short to just 4 things.

  • Most people are nice, they will respond to you if you say hello to them and ask them how their weekend went.
  • Some people are willing to share about their experiences. If you ask them questions about food, they will review lots of useful creative juice.
  • There are some people that will keep their voices down when they are talking to their friends. This is because they are hiding something (from me lol).
  • Not everyone wants to talk, most people will just look at social media on their phones and sometimes they will share random memes (So this is what people spend their free time on).

 

Conclusion:

I will try to become an expert in a specific topic next time so I know what to say whenever I approach people and interact with them. Below are some topics I will look more into

  • Indian Food
  • Latest Action Movies
  • Football
  • Business related
  • Skill books
