Don’t Argue Hungry (and four other ways to avoid a fight)

So many people agreed with this when we shared it on social media that we realized we had to share it with you, too.

In our book Radical Alignment we dedicated a good chunk of space to a few times you should never get into a heavy conversation.

We call them “conversation killers.”

We have a rule where either of us can pause a conversation if we realize either of us are:

  1. Hungry 
  2. Angry
  3. Lonely 
  4. Tired
  5. Or have had even one glass of Alcohol.
  6. (Think: HALT-A)

The simple rule is, if either of you are impaired by hunger (don’t take our work for it — check out this study), exhaustion, or even a glass of wine, everyone will do better to wait until after a snack, or even a day later to continue the conversation!

Get Radical Alignment for you and your family, or for your team, because … YES! We believe in following these guidelines for work meetings, too!
