Hammering the Point Home
When trying to hammer a point home, I do not always hit the nail on the head, so the hold my nail (concept) has on an audience, is fragile and bent.
How does one speak with clarity and conviction, exactitude and enthusiasm?
By understanding your group of listeners and speaking to them specifically.
I feel I have less and less time to understand my aquaintances and co-workers. I am purposed with the "how" after I've wrangled the "why", and wrestled the "who."
For all my verbosity, I lack effective communication skills. A trip to the library is a must. After all, you can learn anything from a book, right?
