I rarely sit and say “Wow. I wish I knew how to do that.” I greatly admire people who have amazing skills: one of my friends makes the most gorgeous quilts. While I think what she makes is wonderful, I absolutely don’t want to learn how to quilt. I have friends who play instruments, speak languages and know how to sail. I appreciate the knowledge they have, but as for me learning? No thanks.
I rarely say that I wish I knew how to do something. If I want to learn how to do something, I just do it. There is no preamble. There is just action. Which probably explains why I do so little, but that’s a whole other blog…
So, when tasked with this question about what I would like to know how to do…I sort of go rogue…
What do I wish?
I wish I knew how to read people’s minds.
Most of the time I am actually pretty good at reading cues…which would explain why I hate Zoom…I am decent at uncovering body language clues, and I am good at detecting tone.
That being said, there are times I totally misread the room…where the inhabitants might as well be speaking Klingon for all I get out of the conversation and cues.
So clearly, I want to know what people are really thinking…what does this person really think about the situation, the setting, the people? What do they think about my outfit? Do they really think I wear too much black? This is what this inquiring minds wants to know!!
But as I can’t learn to read minds…just tell me…
What are you thinking about?
