…don’t poop your pants

As I was leaving for a trip the other day, my 4 year-old daughter and I had a conversation that ended in a peculiar way. Not odd for a 4-year old, I imagine, as she confidently said “see you later daddy hope you poop your pants.”

I gave her a chuckle and reassured her that I would not (this time) and went on my merry way. I actually thought about this for both airport layovers that day.

What’s the point here?

How we leave a conversation is just as important as how we start one. How many times have we thoughtfully engaged in a conversation with an individual or a group, only to disengage in a fashion that did not match the conversational ingress.

Maybe it was due to time constraints, maybe the information exchange was sufficient or maybe you just didn’t want to talk (or listen) any longer. Provide sufficient thought to how you disengage as that will often leave a lasting impression.

…make wise choices,
