Overcoming 4 Hurdles to Fully Integrated Communication
A few days ago I received a message from my little sister. She heard I was about to release a new eBook and she wanted to know why I hadn’t told her about it myself.
Just this past weekend Teresa and I went out for a glass of wine after the little kids went to bed. I shared with her some of the different projects that I’m currently working on and why I was so excited about them. It hit me that I had had many of these conversations with coworkers weeks before.
Unfortunately, both of these are par for the course. I’m simply not the communicator at home that I am in the office.

If communication is so essential for corporate wellbeing, shouldn’t we assume that it’s at least as critical for optimizing our familial relationships?
As I’ve examined my own motivations, I’ve discovered four obstacles to personal communication that I need to overcome. Hopefully, my sharing them will help you see similar struggles in your life and give you the the motivation to strive to overcome them.Learn to live an integrated life with humble confidence.
