There’s something missing from many people’s daily lives:
Critical thinking skills.
Let’s be honest here, we all get caught up in our tweets, smart phones, laptops, likes, +1’s, netflix, texts, emails and forget to (drumroll please…this is pretty revolutionary!)
ACTUALLY TALK TO PEOPLE.
Pretty awesome concept, don’t you think?
That’s why a groups all over the world have started something called a “conversation cafe” where people get together at a cafe and simply start a conversation about a specific topic. There is no structure to the conversation–it’s just plain old face to face communication and a time to learn from other people.
Take some time this week and turn off your phone, close your laptop, pause your netflix save your tweets, and talk to someone. That someone can be your closest friend or a complete stranger–you will learn from both.
Think you might want to start your own conversation cafe? Check out more information here.
