Infect your listeners
Not a word is spoken.
No one in that car knows why it’s happening.
We, watching, don’t know why it’s making us feel like those in that car.
But it’s definitely happening. It’s definitely spreading.
Just a reminder. Laughter — turning a dour, disengaged, sleepy group of people who don’t know one another into happy, smiling participants within a connected group — is contagious.
It’s genuine. It doesn’t happen in 20 seconds, or even 60, and the longer it goes, the more infectious it is.
There’s a lesson for us in that.
