Shouts and Whispers

by Ben Perreira

When traveling (or doing business, or trying to meet women, or surfing, etc.) there are shouts and whispers. Shouts are the things everybody does because they are easy, conventional and require no mental effort. Whispers are what the few do who seem to have a pulse on inner goings-on. Where shouts zig, whispers zag.

Neither one is better. Following whispers can be incredibly stressful, but I think much more rewarding.
