Solving the problems in the world seems to be an impossible task. For any one of us, that is probably true. But I believe that if we each focus on making our own personal "world" better (whether that is ourselves, our family, or our community), the results will spread and maybe the world will start solving it's own problems.

Podcast Episode 43: Make Everyone Your Coach
Ask For Advice
Last week we talked about coaching. This week I will share a trick that will let you turn everyone you meet into a potential coach.
When you talk with people, the natural tendency is to do most of the talking but the people who are the best conversationalists are the people that listen the most. They listen and they ask good questions.
The trick is asking good questions, these are questions that allow the other person to share things that are important to them.
Body Language. Where are the feet pointing
While you are asking questions you may as well ask advice about the things that this person is good at.
Remember, only listen to advice from people that know what they are talking about. If someone is unhealthy, discount their advice about health. If they are poor, money. Etc. (always exceptions)
