Let conversation be the main agenda

Conversations are among the richest and the most rewarding forms of human exchange.

And yet, we aren’t explicit about slotting them into our schedules. We meet friends for lunch or dinner. When friends come home, we play board games or watch football. We plan road trips, hikes and city tours. Sure – conversation can happen beside any of these activities. But good conversations are incompatible with packed schedules. They are large beasts and need their own territory to thrive.

The best conversations I have had is when they are the main agenda, with everything else playing second fiddle.
