Get to the point.

Communication is oddly challenging. People frequently fail to truly understand what each other are saying.

The more words you say, the more likely you are to lose your listener.

Say as much as you can in the minimum space. This is one of two most important communication tips.

Getting to the point means:

A simple communication algorithm:

  1. State your message directly. Some people will get it without wasting further time. Some will be curious to hear more.
  2. Next, develop the message a bit further. Bring clarity with examples, organization, and a story.
  3. Last, recap your message again. Tie your ideas back together to make it stick.

Cut the fluff and get to the point.
