These things just happen naturally. Don’t they?But in truth, truly good conversations come along very rarely; largely because our societies fall for the Romantic myth that knowing how to talk to other people is something we are born knowing how to do, rather than an art dependent on a little planning and a few skills. We rightly accept that total improvisation in preparing a meal is unlikely to yield good outcomes; but we show no such caution or modesty when it comes to how we might talk over the food once it has been made. Finding oneself in a good conversation can feel as haphazard and random as stumbling on a beautiful square in a foreign city at night ­– and realising one won’t reliably know how to get back there in daytime.”You can read more on this and other subjects on our blog, here: https://goo.gl/dSuY1L MORE SCHOOL OF LIFEOur website has classes, articles and products to help you think and grow: https://goo.gl/eJKlpuWatch more films on RELATIONSHIPS in our playlist: http://bit.ly/TSOLrelationshipsYou can submit translations and transcripts on all of our videos here: https://www.youtube.com/timedtext_cs_...
