IS TALKING SIMILAR TO DRIVING?

Talking is similar to driving in many ways.

1.  While driving, our vehicle may collide with the vehicle coming from the front. While talking, our emotions and ego may collide with the other person's emotions and ego. We, therefore, need to be equally careful while talking.

2. We get sufficient fuel for going on a long drive. Similarly, we must chalk out sufficient time for negotiating on important topics.

3. We carefully avoid potholes while driving on rough roads. We must handle controversial topics delicately while talking to a person. It is better to create topics of mutual interest also.

4. We grease the nuts and bolts of our vehicle to protect it from rust. We must use sincere appreciations in our talking to avoid misunderstandings & differences.

5. We keep our senses alert while driving.
 Our eyes continuously monitor all the traffic. Our ears listen to all the sounds with full attention. Our nostrils immediately smell anything burning or any fuel leak etc. Our sixth sense alerts us to any impending danger.   Similarly, we should continuously monitor body language, tone etc while negotiating and take corrective steps according to the need.
6. When we encounter novice, rash or drunken drivers, we keep patience and avoid accidents.  We need the same amount of patience and skill to  handle novice, rash or drunken negotiators.
