Sometimes it’s the most unexpected things that can give us that adrenalin rush and that high of having succeeded. 

Have you ever put off a job or task until it has become unwieldy to the point of you wanting to simply bury your head in a hole?   I have.  Even though I thought I had overcome that.  It all changed these past few weeks.  And to top it off, my old friend, ‘phone reluctance’ crept up when I wasn’t looking.

How are you?

This is the frequent ‘add-on’ to our friendly “hello” that we offer in our country, regardless of whether we know you or not.  So, how are you? 

Over the last few communication skills courses I’ve run, we’ve ended up discussing this ‘add-on greeting’ and some participants who originate from other countries, can be perplexed by the question.  “Why do you want to know how I am?  You don’t even know me.”  Many times, we ask the question in passing so that we are nowhere within earshot of the person by the time they do respond.  Weird right?
