Remember this—when it comes to communication, the more you spell it out the more people will retain. Since we’re now in the month of June, let’s use those four letters as an example.
J=Jargon; it’s best to avoid using jargon when you speak as it ends up coming across as noise.
U=Ums and Uhs; strive to eliminate these verbal fillers from your speech and you’ll sound far more articulate.
N=Non-specific words; steer clear of saying “thing” or “stuff,” which will help to build your vocabulary.
E=Excuses; drop the habit of offering excuses for miscommunication and instead make your communication a top priority.
If you implement these ideas now, imagine how much better you’ll sound by the end of 2011!
