Great list Jason! I never really looked at the some of those situations in the way you described. Like accepting the drink to show hospitality. But when I think about it, thats how the locals did things when I was on tour in Bosnia. So I guess it kind of applies everywhere!

Jason Jacobsohn

Thanks Ray. Glad that the list was helpful.

Jason, while this blog is terrific, I believe your title has an issue. I suggest you read "Remember The Ice" by Bob Nicoll to see what I'm talking about. Just a small adjustment may make a paradigm shift in your posts and conversations.

What issue are you talking about?

Steve Blumenfeld

Long story-short: Bob Nicoll's book shows that when you say "Don't forget the small things," people only hear,"forget the small things."
He gives a great example how this worked in his book. Instead, change the title to,"Remember the small things." Just that slight word shift can make all the difference in the world.

Thanks Steve. That makes sense.
