Is zoomophobia a word? Maybe not. But lots of people seem to have it. For every person that sees it as a valuable resource there is another person that despises it. I can understand the love it or hate it viewpoints. Most of us don’t like looking at ourselves for any length of time in the mirror. Or maybe that’s just me.
Word bingo helps to keep me alert at times. We all have ways of expressing ourselves that are unique to us. Words or phrases that we use that can sometimes become our signature. I recognize some people in meetings and I know that they are going to say certain words or a certain phrase. It’s comforting and familiar. And amusing. As soon as they do I give myself a mental high-five. Some people have gone so far as to put these words down on a card. When the words come up throughout the course of the meeting and they have a full house they can give themselves an inward ‘Hooray’.
Perhaps whatever it takes to keep ourselves engaged during these times is a worthwhile endeavor. Keep on zooming.
That’s all for now.
Have a great day.
