- Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?
- It used to be that at a party one should never discuss religion, sex and politics. Does this still stand? Are there other subjects that need to be added to this list of avoidable conversations?
- Do sports make life more bearable? Are sports akin to religion, alcohol or a literal pastime?
- Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
- When was the last time you lied? Do you lie when you do not voice truth? Is it possible to lie without saying anything at all?
- You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?
- Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?
- What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
- Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
- Is it crazier to choose to be poor, or to spend 40 years of your life hating 40 hours a week?
- If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
- When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
This is the fifth and final installment of our series providing questions and observations that will serve as perfect conversation starters at this season’s social gatherings.
