I want to open with a personal story: I learned I have a hearing impairment (and tinnitus) at age 48. For years, I have had to pay closer attention to what people were saying and I increasingly asked questions to add clarity and context to conversations. Between you and me, my hearing “auto-correct” is often hilarious, and nowhere near what the person said!
Taken out of context, hearing "there is no such thing as too much information," might sound unfortunate. Let me elaborate, and fast. When I consult with financial or philanthropic clients, I often start with the question, "What is your story?" followed by "There is no such thing as TMI." We are taught to self-censor, to keep it short, and I want the exact opposite to happen.
