That’s the question I don’t ask anymore.
So why do I post it?
Mmh… that’s a good question although a bit invasive and slightly judgmental.
Before I go further, let me state this post is not a lecture on what a good question is.
This title question questions me deeply because it contains what I really want and what I really don’t.
I experienced from early childhood that we don’t want to be told what to do.
But by lack of attention, I let the “shoulds” pass in conversations, especially in French culture where you can find those “il faudrait” “tu devrais” in every second phrase.
I had the definitive “should” revelation when I wanted to revamp my websites. I saw that for one of them I used the exact phrase “shouldn’t we listen more?” I couldn’t believe I let it pass all these years! I was so shocked that now no “shoulds” will pass through my mouth, pen, ears or eyes unnoticed (often complemented by a hair-raising experience 😉
So what I want to say in this post is:
“I find Listening an urgent necessity an I would be really pleased if we all wanted to listen to each other a little bit more”.
And that’s not a question.
