Let’s take a break from showering ourselves with some universal, timeless, and obvious principles of Dale Carnegie.
So far, in the first 12 Droplets, we have learned not to attack a person by throwing him an uncalled for sharp criticism…because that is futile.
Then, on the second spray of 16 Droplets, Dale taught us what to do instead. It is better to appreciate others—genuinely.
On the last 6 Droplets of the third wave, we have learned to speak of what others are interested in, to talk about their desires and then show them how to get those desires.
Those are very practical insights, mostly forgotten by many of us because of the too many academic subjects we need to learn.
In the mean time, let’s give ourselves a few days to ponder about these insights. Ten days from now, we will continue with the other principles of Dale Carnegie’s book How To Win Friends and Influence People.
Have a nice reflective rest. Droplets will resume after ten days. 🙂
