As I sat on the bus, an attractive lady sat a couple of rows in front of me. Our eyes locked together before she sat down. However, my stop was next. I exited the bus without another glance.
Looking back, I wish I changed my plans slightly and sat next to her on the bus. Whatever it takes to create conversation.
As I walked in the coffee area, people were sipping on their coffee, looking at their Apple computers, and looking generally bored. However, I kept on walking by.
Looking back, I wish I talked to some of them. I may have asked them about their coffee drink or what they’re studying. Whatever it takes to create conversation.
As I waited at the bus stop, I froze along with multiple folks in the forty degree morning. I could have asked about their final exams as well as talk about mine. However, I stayed quiet and continued freezing.
Looking back, I wish I warmed up to them. Whatever it takes to create conversation.
As I scroll about looking at my Twitter feed, I looked at all the various tweets and blog posts. I have an opportunity to connect by leaving comments. However, I got lazy.
Looking back, I wish I left more replies to their Twitter or blog. Whatever it takes to create conversation.
You’ll always have opportunities to create conversation. Are you willing to get over yourself to actually create them? Give them the chance to respond.
