Hi there,How is it going?
Oh,Fine How about this weather ,huh?
Well,I guess we can alway use the rain
What is that ? This story ? Oh, just d little look at small talk.
You know, those seemingly meaning less conversations you have dozens of time a day .It all seems pretty trivial ,Idle chatter about traffic doesn't do much more than fill the air with empty words that are quickly forgotten .But you should know that small talk actually has a big place in our lives
Pat oliver, assistant professor on arts ,says that ,“left unchecked,small talk can be an invasion .It's so powerful.It does something to you''
Every morning after spending an hour and half on the freeway I start the day with small talk with my secretary "Oliver says ''If I don't make small connetcion with another person,I can't work''
What causes it? As a rule, you're either tying to force something into your life ,or you 're using conversation .as an invisible force field to .keep them out ,you can be wanting to connect with another person.

Nearly, all “speed reading” courses have a “pacing” element---some timing devices which lets the student know how many words a minute he is reading. You can do this simply by looking at your watch every 5 or 10 minutes and noting down the page number you have reached, check the average number of words per page for the particular book you are reading. How do you know when 5 minutes has passed on your watch if you are busy reading the book? Well, this is difficult at first. A friend can help by timing you over a set period , or you can read within hearing distance of a public clock which strikes the quarter hours . Pace yourself every three or four days ,always with the same kind of easy, general interest book. You should soon notice your accustomed w.p.m. rate creeping up.
Obviously there is little point in increasing your w.p.m. rate if you do not understand what you are reading. When you are consciously trying to increase your reading speed, stop after every chapter (if you are reading a novel ) or every section or group of ten or twelve pages (if it is a text book )and ask yourself a few questions about what you have been reading. If you find you have lost the thread of the story , or you cannot remember clearly the details of what was said, reread the section or chapter.
You can also try “lightning speed” exercise from time to time. Take four or five pages of general interest book you happen to be reading and read them as fast as you possibly can . Do not bother about whether you understand or not. Now go back and read them at what you feel to be your “normal” w.p.m. rate, the rate at which you can comfortably understand. After a “lightning speed ” reading through (probably 600 w.p.m. )you will usually find that your normal speed has increased ---perhaps by as much as 50-100 w.p.m. This is the technique sportsman use when they usually run further in training that they will have to on the day of the big race.
