“Knock, knock”

The purpose of most communication isn’t to completely explain yourself. Too often, we get stuck relieving tension, making our case and closing the door on the discussion.

The purpose is to open the door to interaction, learning and action. “Who’s there?” is a fine response to hope for.

Communication is a process, not an event.

The all-volunteer Carbon Almanac launches tomorrow. You can pre-order today for delivery on pub day in the US (I recommend the print edition much more than the digital or audio–it’s best as a book.) It’s not too late but we need to begin changing our systems. And you can’t change a system until you see it.
