Interrupt Someone to Join a Conversation

You can meet a new person by interrupting them. Just be sure to be polite about it. In this case, I was working on my computer and two people interrupted me. I was NOT inconvenienced by this at all. We had a nice conversation and learned a few things about each other.

While I don’t suggest that you are ever rude to anyone, it may be helpful to know that even while people appear to be busy on their phone or their computer, you can probably still get into a conversation with them, if you choose to. 


Tony Esteves has entertained people on 5 continents. Based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, he works as a play-based workshop facilitator and performer. He studied improv at the Second City Improv Training Centre in Toronto and loves to bring people together. Tony has been performing with Le Cirque de la Nuit since 2014 and was a part of their 2016 TEDx performance. He believes that people can best move their lives and careers forward by having more face-to-face conversations. (That is how he got into the circus). And this is why he created the Talk2MorePeople Project. During this social experiment, Tony met at least one new stranger a day for an entire year and his life was positively transformed.
