QW 030112 “Awkward conversation”

My project partner and I had an awkward conversation with the person involved in our project for the last three months. It required a certain amount of courage for me to quit dancing around the topic that I wanted to bring up and go straight to the point that I wanted to make. After spending a few minutes on a small talk, I made up mind to talk about why we were here today and what we would like to do with our project. My partner made a really good point on the matter and I seconded her statement to follow up. It took us 40 more minutes to reach mutual agreement toward the future of our project. In fact, we could’ve just stated what we wanted to say and finished the conversation in five minutes, but that wasn’t the way that we’d wish today’s meeting to be. During the talk, I felt as if I was an anesthetist. I went two steps further, and took one step back, three steps further, and two steps back to minimize the impact that my talk would bring. That’s very Japanese, isn’t it? We’d never say we’re happy with our decision, but we had to go through this awkward moment anyway.
