Do the Opposite

Place yourself in extreme situations – if you hate dinner functions, go to dinner functions; if you are not comfortable, be comfortable; if you don’t want to be engaged in a conversation, be engaged in a conversation; if you don’t want to be seen, be seen; if you get nervous around someone, be around someone, as often as possible; if you hate presentations, do more presentations, but practise first – so one day, you will be different, not in a sense that you won’t be nervous any more, but rather you have gotten used to dancing with your fear, so you have thrill instead of fear when you are in the situations again.


Power of Cutting

I always believe in simplicity and love how Dennis Roch put it, “If it takes a lot of words to say what you have in mind, give it more thought.” Cutting down your words makes you think, provides clarity to your mind and allows you to refine your ideas, so when you communicate it, it’s crystal clear. Good for the audience.

Cutting forges effective communication.
