Taking is when you make another conversation about yourself. Someone else says "I went to Thailand and had an amazing trip." and you say "I went to Thailand last year." That usually kills the conversation.
However, when you turn a conversation you get to say, "I also went to Thailand last year. What was your favourite part?" This shows them that you heard what they said and care enough to ask a follow-up question.
The best conversationalists always turn the conversation three or four times to peel off the layers and get more depth out of a conversation.

When we learn to ask better questions in a conversation, we move into a metamorphic two-step.
It's about having a presence. Presence is when you're only responding and reacting to what's happening in the moment. There's no story from the past, no fear of the future.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
