I've been single for a while now and have decided to get back out there. I like to have a cache of questions/conversation starters when I meet some one. The same old stuff about your job and movies and music runs out fast and is over played. So with the thought of supplying me with loads of insightful questions, let's play a little get to know you game.
I will start by listing a few questions. I will answer one. The next poster, will answer one, and then post one question of their own. The next person answers and posts a new quetion and so on...
What was your favorite toy and why?
What's the best practical joke you have been a part of?
What is a piece of advice you followed that changed your life?
The piece of advice that changed my life was actually quite simple. I was in charge of 50 folks and not getting the results I needed from my team. My Boss was leading me in a discusion to help. Frustrated I pointed out that if these people just did their job like I did, we would be great. My Bos said, "Well not everyone is you." That hit me like a ton of bricks. From then on I made sure I was looking at the situation from their point of view and started asking 'why' more instead of barking orders. My sucess was incredible after that.
Who is next?
