The saying goes "Big people talk about ideas, average people talk about things and small people talk about other people."
What category do you fall under? Talking about other people in not a bad thing all the time. It is bad when all you talk about is gossip and small talk about other people. If you talk about other people in the light of what they have accomplished or what they plan to do and how you can learn from it, it is a good thing.
For a little over a year I have had the opportunity to meet and get to know some great people who love to talk about ideas and talk about things most people are not even thinking about. This has helped me in many ways. It helps you grow personally and also lets you have a broader understanding of things around you. I also realized that once you start to talk about different ideas you will start liking certain subjects that you were not necessarily interested in before.
What do you think? What kind of ideas do you think about?
