Step 1: Simply get to the point.
I write about this topic a lot… and I keep writing about it, because every day we see people speak who take their sweet time getting to the point. We are all busy, we are all suffering from reduced attention spans, and we all hate sitting in meetings, presentations or on calls that have no value.
So, don’t be that person who wastes others’ time. Don’t be that person who rambles around and never gets to the point. Don’t be that person who runs calls or meetings with no value.
Plan out your purpose or your main point. Then listen to yourself. Do you actually say it? Do you actually make your point? Or do you talk around it, without actually ever saying it? We all hate it when other people do this to us. But then many of us turn around and commit the same mistake over and over and over and over, every single day.
Be the person who doesn’t waste other people’s time. Get to the point.
Have a great day.
