60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday: Is What They Said What I Heard?
by Diane Wyzga | December 30, 2021 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Minneapolis, Minnesota!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday.
A man drives into a filling station and asks the attendant to fill the tank with gas. The attendant sees 3 penguins standing on the back seat of the car and tells the man, “Hey! You should take those penguins to the zoo!” The man says, “Good idea!” And drives away.
About a week later the same man returns to the filling station and asks the attendant to fill the gas tank. The attendant sees the same 3 penguins but now they’re wearing sunhats, sunglasses, and beach sandals. He says, “Hey! I thought I told you to take those penguins to the zoo!” “I did, replied the man, and we had such a good time today we’re going to the beach!”
Practical Tip: When sharing a conversation with someone now or in the future take a moment to ask yourself:
What did they say?
What did I hear?
Was it the same, or different?
