Most of life's relational conflicts and problems can be traced back to poor communication or miscommunication. This occurs because we talk (or type or text) all day long and for our entire life so we fall under the misconception that we do it well. The "10,000 hour rule" (see Malcolm Gladwell's "Outliers") definitely applies here but in a negative way. We have all mastered miscommunication by the time we are teenagers and must spend the rest of our lives trying to reverse the bad habits that have been formed. To communicate well, we must realize that it takes intentional actions and thoughts and "winging it" won't work. "You might know how to read, but more importantly, what's your plan to read?" Jim Rohn
