What Do You Talk About?

Women thinking positively

“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.” –Eleanor Roosevelt

Gail Cawley Showalter

Let’s talk about ideas.

We can talk about the party we went to last weekend. We can talk about how our friends, or enemies, dressed. We can talk about the game and all the plays. We can talk about how stupid our old boyfriend sounded at school yesterday. OR we can talk about ideas.

Ideas make the world a better place. Ideas create, invent , and enhance our world. Ideas activate the better part of ourselves.

When we spend time discussing other people we usually end in gossip or anger.

When we spend time discussing events we often end in criticism.

When we spend time discussing ideas we make the world a better place.
