Yes, I do.
You know it and I know it. I can’t help it – sometimes.
Trying to get out all the information to each other, be it family, friends or clients is not always the best way to get your message across.
Something gets lost in the process, it’s what’s called: their attention.
You lose their interest and eventually become a sound machine where nothing is retained in the mind of your audience.
Sure, some people need more than a simple, rounded message. But if they need more info, they will tend to ask for it.
Otherwise, don’t waste your breath and their time.
So next time you have an idea for a promotion, or a meeting or whatever, take ALL your minutiae and condense it down into the blocks of specific – yet simplified, messages that you are trying to get across.
Keep it Simple – Keep it Specific.
I think I’ve heard that somewhere before, and it’s a good idea to remember it from time to time.
