Top 3 Takeaways From This Value-Packed Conversation

- “Mouse naming” is something you need to care about because every unnamed mouse leads to more disconnection. If you’re not identifying the issues you’re having with someone, or the issues they’re having with you, and putting yourself in a position to have a conversation that will hopefully eradicate the issues, you’re only going to put more distance between you and others, thus damaging relationships and intensifying the burden you’re carrying
