It's just as important to prepare for the conversations you're not going to have as the ones you plan to have this week.
Maybe you're not going to gossip with a friend, or perhaps you're going to resist the urge to overshare or make assumptions without getting the facts. Maybe you're not going to criticize the way your spouse folds laundry. Whatever conversation you're not having this week, plan for it. Practice what you're going to say instead. Don't leave it to chance that you'll be able to do it on the fly and in the moment.
And if you're looking for something to say, these sports conversation starters should help.
