Improve the quality of conversation by...
- Eliminating "Yes, but..." and "I know" (when I don't really), "I assume", " or "You, He, She, They, or We should..."
- Offering undivided attention and listening at least as much as I speak
- Taking nothing personal and aging with a sense of humor intact
- Limiting my contribution to experiences & ideas rather than hearsay, condescension, criticism, or unsolicited advice
