Self-Awareness Through Conversation

How do I know what I am thinking until I say it? I like this Einstein quote someone once applied to adult learning because it zeros right in on why we need conversation. That space allowing us to verbalize our thoughts also lets us become aware of what we are thinking. It is essential for self-awareness and our learning about the self.

Perhaps this is what makes journal writing so effective. We pen our thoughts, conversing with ourselves. This gets these thoughts out of our heads and into the open for our own examination and learning.

My new experience with personal (life) coaching is that the coaching conversation seamlessly allows this. You achieve this space through the coach's presence and listening. Life coaching is a powerful way to know what you are thinking because you get to say it and have it heard. The bonus is that you get to co-examine your thoughts in a meaningful way.
