Here’s the questions we should ask ourselves to narrow to the key points:
- What have I included that’s only important to me to talk about?
- Is this information essential for the other party to take action?
- Could I remove half of the information I’m about to communicate and still get the message across?
“Try honestly to see things from the other person’s point of view.” -Dale Carnegie
Narrow your communication to the key points. If you do, more people will remember and act on what you’ve said.
