Be prepared, punctual for dialogue!
Our topic today is "respect your time and that of the others.” Some dialogues may start spontaneously, without prior notice as that which takes place on an airplane, with a taxi driver, someone you meet in a restaurant, with your school mate.
Other dialogues are previously prepared for or they are quite expected. In which case:
— Be on time and it is preferable to be there at least 10 minutes before the meeting.
— Have everything you need ready, including books, devices, illustrations … etc.
— If you know that you are running late, call and inform the other party before the set time.
— You might come across some people with whom it is quite difficult to conduct a dialogue. In such cases, you might behave in a way completely different from your set goals.
— Last but not the least discussing sensitive issues may make you angry, lose your self-confidence, or become confused as to the proper stand to be taken.
