I’m an early morning person.
For my social life this means that I am normally the first person to fade during a night out on the town.
The people in my life are aware of this and other than some good natured ribbing about how I am a “party pooper” are supportive of me being the first one to head home.
The only time this becomes a problem is when I am the one hosting the party and can’t be the first one in bed.
At the same time, I want to be a good host, but without actually telling everyone one that they need to go home because I want to go to bed!
Years ago I realized there was a simple strategy to get everyone to leave without having to be explicit. When it was time to clear out my place, I would join a conversation with some friends and bring up a certain topic. Within five minutes the people I was talking to would wish me good night and head home.
I’d then move on to the next group of people and do the same thing.
Fifteen minutes later almost everyone had cleared out, making it easy to end the night and head to bed.
The topic I would bring up is one of the most taboo topics in our society. It’s not money, politics, or religion.
Instead it’s an emotion that we all feel BUT one that people want to talk about the least. Knowing what this emotion is and what you can do to avoid it is essential to your happiness and success.
This podcast episode is about that tricky emotion and how you can avoid it.
