CRUCIAL CONVERSATIONS

Previously, I wrote about my new addiction to audio books (CLICK HERE to see my BLOG article "MY LATEST ADDICTION"). After I finished several audio books from comedians and humorists (e.g.: Tina Fey, Steve Martin, and David Sedaris); several ones from "serious" authors (such as William Butler Yeats reading his poetry); now I've settled into listening to "instructional" ones.

At Goodwill, I hit a bonanza and I now have 5 new (used) tapes to enjoy!

I am currently listening to Disc 6 of the 7-disc set of Crucial Conversations, which, according to a blurb on the package, was a New York Times best-seller. That I had not known that fact is indicative that I either have not kept abreast of the best-seller list, or that I wasn't very impressed at the time.

Listening to Disc 2, I learned that in a current, personal situation, I have been "withdrawing" rather than confronting an issue.

I could have just listened to the 2-minute YouTube video instead of listening to the 7 tapes!
