Our Communication Skills

Evolution is happening right in front of us. Evolution of communicating. The Pandemic put this evolution into warp speed. In my opinion, this change in our ability to communicate with one another is destructive.Evolution is happening right in front of us. Evolution of communicating. The Pandemic put this evolution into warp speed. In my opinion, this change in our ability to communicate with one another is destructive. When is the last time you phoned or visited someone on their birthday to wish them well? Did you do as so many choose to do now and send them a text, or maybe a Facebook post? How many of you choose to buy things online, such as car insurance or life insurance because you do not want to deal with a salesman? How many of you manage investment accounts online to avoid dealing with a broker? You make excuses about saving money, but in reality, you just don’t want to talk with someone. My brothers and sisters in Christ, this is unhealthy. We need to interact personally with one another. From a position of being a Financial Planner, I can see the destruction of a person’s good intentions when they attempt to do everything themselves. What actually happens is they leave their estate in disarray at death. Things that a professional could have prevented are now a problem for the loved ones of the deceased. I have seen this time and time again and it’s getting much more frequent. Beneficiaries of an estate coming to me for advice because they are at a loss on how to settle an estate. Many of the issues I see could have been prevented if the deceased had a professional planner in their life in lieu of a customer service representative available at a toll free number in the Philippines call center for an online financial company! You must avoid the trend of avoiding personal contact. People have lost their ability to communicate, have lost their ability to disagree, and have lost their ability to problem solve with other human beings. God gave us the ability to speak with one another, put it to use.
