People bond in the negative

I’m not a negative person, but I have realized that a lot of bonding (especially with someone you don’t know well) happens in the negative (aka complaining/kvetching).

The weather. The traffic. Politics. This sucks. That sucks.

I’ve always found it a bit tough to empathize at that level (hey man, I’m outchea living my best life!) – but something to consider when building relationships.

People bond in the negative.

What are Quick Thoughts?

Inspired by Seth Godin's indefatigable daily ouput, Quick Thoughts is where I give my quick thoughts on business, entrepreneurship, productivity, and living an enjoyable life.


They are posted by me on Facebook before being added to SJO.com (so you can follow me there if you prefer).
