Chime in

Where did this come from? I haven’t seen it coming, really…

I’ve left the subconscious unsupervised and this is the topic that came up in.

You read this, you feel like commenting. You’re in the middle of the article so you’ll finish it first in order to say something. It’s different than a normal conversation where is rude to stop the speaker for every question you come up with. You do it anyway.

You stop her with your questions. From that moment everything changes.

How come you risk being rude and move on with a question (that you might have got the answer by the end) but you don’t stop the reading and jot down the the question that pops up into your mind and, by the end of the article you forget what was all about and you don’t chime in? Maybe it wasn’t so important after all.

Different situations ask for different behaviours. When you are in front of a screen, learning something new, you either stop every time something interesting pops up or you pay attention to whats happening, this way when everything ends, you draw a line and see what stuck. Usually there is one thing that makes a huge difference.

By chiming in, you help others see from a different perspective and you also help yourself grasp a new idea, concept etc.

Chiming in is as important as the starting point, the question. The sooner you make people engage, the better (and by engagement, I don’t mean “shares”, “likes” etc.). This is how ideas are being built. 3:18 left (this is the 13th article I write for this blog; two weeks have passed from this challenge and I’m starting to like this place here on iankoo.ro; I write whatever comes into my mind for 15 minutes and I hit that post button. This is a good exercise that will definitely come handy when it comes to posting new content. This will tame down second guessing and will make the process much easier; it removes the burden that comes from putting yourself out there. Thank you!)

I’ll chime in again tomorrow!
