Andy Dietrick: Reflect, listen well, and read everything

Each month, we ask an Indiana Humanities friend or partner how they think, read and talk. We feature that someone in the “How do you identify with the humanities” section of our e-newsletter. This month, it’s Andy Dietrick. Andy is the public relations director for Indiana Farm Bureau, which is a lead partner of Indiana’s Family of Farmers–the presenting sponsor of Food for Thought. Andy and Indiana’s Family of Farmers have been key supporters and resources for the Food for Thought program.

This photo of Andy was shot in a Carneros vineyard with rolling hills of Chardonnay in the background.

Think:
Take a deep breath before you speak, act or hit the send button.  A moment of reflection will safeguard you from unintended consequences. 

Read:
Read what you enjoy. Read what you don’t enjoy.  Set aside at least a half hour a day to read words, printed on paper, that don’t have anything to do with your livelihood.

Talk:
In every exchange, listen well to what others have to say.  Their knowledge is the true value of daily conversation.
