Quote of the Day | Debra Perry

You get a lot further by talking with people rather than talking at them.

Debra Perry



My Commentary: This quote is simple and to the point. It’s incredible how much you can connect with people when you learn how to talk with someone than at someone. Often times people are so concerned with the next thing they’re going to say, they don’t really take the time to listen to what others are actually saying. It’s easy to talk at someone and it definitely takes patience and compassion to talk with someone. Having open dialogue rather than talking at people is so rewarding and you can learn so much. Next time someone is trying to talk to you, remember to take a step back and talk with them.
