Say No To Crumbs!

Imagine you’re sitting in your favourite cafe and you spot the most delicious cake on display and it looks quite spectacular. You call your waiter over and place an order for a generous slice and sit in gleeful anticipation. Now just imagine your waiter comes over with a large plate, embossed with the most beautifully intricate design, and sitting in the middle of this plate are 5 crumbs. Yes. Crumbs.

Why I Love Courageous Conversations

Last night I got a call from a good friend of mine whom I hadn’t heard from in a bit. It was a super quick call  (less than 2 minutes long) but she wanted me to know she’d be in touch (properly) soon. Most of the conversation was her talking and me laughing loudly over her talking, because she knew me well enough to know that I was sulking at her non-communication. This call was a testament to how great a friend she is. You see, she knew she didn’t have to reach out but she did it anyway because she knew I’d appreciate it. It’s only when I hung up that I realized that if we hadn’t had a Courageous Conversation, this time last year, we probably wouldn’t still be friends today…
