Pick up the phone and call

When you really want to communicate something important, say it with meaning.

You can’t do this by text message, email, voice mail, snap chat, direct message, or smoke signals.

When “In person” isn’t possible, voice to voice is way better than any of the above.

Electronic communication is mono-dimensional – little, if any, depth.

Sure! We can type meaningful things.

We can send sweet words . . .

We can even add emojis and pictures to punctuate our “Authenticity.”

It’s still cold because real human to human interaction is omni-dimensional . . . Yes, all manners of communication come into play.

Intonation

Rhythm

Touch

Body Language

Intuition

ESP

Instant feedback

“That” look

Words take on more meaning.

History plays a significant role. Individual and mutual History dance as the 2 people in dialog have this tremendous opportunity to reminisce and play with all that’s happened before and how it relates to what’s happening now and how all of it is presenting possibilities for what’s next.

We don’t get to do all of that when we text.

So . . . Let’s keep things in perspective – With electronic communication we transfer information and coordinate mundane details like: “Let’s meet at the coffee shop”

When we really want/need true connection, pick up the phone and call!

Better yet . . . Hop in the car and visit 🙂

When we do more of this omni-dimensional communication we all feel better about ourselves mentally and physically because we feed each other.

Ain’t that cool?

(I know – I know . . . but it’s so “Old School”)

Give it a try and let me know how it goes.

PS: When we do more of this in business, things go better and happen easier. We at Pareto Realty make every effort to be more “Old School” in this way every day . . . Connect with us for your share of our Home grown real estate.
