Evaluating the quality of *that* conversation

People give you feedback when you talk to them. You’re able to measure the effect of what you’re saying and how you’re saying it based on the response you get. People are drawn to you when you say kind, encouraging, helpful things. People avoid you when you say rude, discouraging, unhelpful things. People eventually leave you when you say judgmental, hurtful, personal things.

You get feedback on how you talk to everyone except for the most frequent and important conversation in your life: how you talk to yourself. Who measures the impact of what you say to yourself and how you say it?

Being encouraging to others externally and judgmental of yourself internally isn’t a winning strategy. Turn up your attention and self-awareness. Give yourself some feedback on the quality of the conversation happening in your head.

How would you characterize the quality and experience of that dialogue?

Embrace the chase. Do the work.
