Conversations about work are boring. We want to share how our day went, but then feel disappointed that our partners are not as interested as we hoped.

It makes us feel like we are undervalued for our efforts.

In the past, if you asked me what I had done that day, I didn’t have much worth sharing.

Nothing really inspiring or interesting – no real story to tell. Just a list facts and actions.

It’s no wonder my wife stopped asking me how my day went.

I was boring!

Take a few moments every evening to reflect on what stimulated emotion in your day.

Seek out the stories that shape your day, be curious about your clients.

There are stories everywhere when you look hard enough.

Stories are powerful conversation starters – stories aren’t just the facts – and are far more interesting when shared.

Telling the facts about your day is boring.

Find the story.
