Writing & Talking

Writing and Talking are great activities to help you get through challenging periods.  I’ve practiced many different ways of expressing myself.  Here is a summary of the show:

  • Writing and talking are great tools for self reflection and discovery.
  • Especially writing.
  • We got all this jumbled stuff within in our minds, and we need a platform or a medium to sort it all out.
  • I think if you are going through a challenge, then this can help you get some of the nasty stuff out of your head, but also help you organize your thinking.
  • When you were done, say, your small journal is done, then you simply dispose of your writings.
  • These things are not mementos or keepsakes.
  • If you have someone that you fully 100% trust, you can sort a lot of things out, as long as the other person is not focusing on giving advice.
  • The Socratic method is a form of cooperative argumentative dialogue between individuals, based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking and to draw out ideas and underlying presumptions.
  • Argument – just talking about opposing ideas, no malice, just respectful communication.
  • I get this often times where it’s just a conversation about something that is on my mind, and I am having a good conversation, and then new ideas will pop out and then I grab them and say YES that is a good idea, that could be very helpful! It could come from the other person, but I find at times, the idea comes from me.
  • What do they say, we all have the answers within us.
  • If you can get some value – and idea or the spirit of the direction of where you must go, then that is all you need.
