Speed Talkers

Second week of this month was about listening – actively listening –

Like listening up – for Divine guidance – intuition

Also to show you are listening with facial and body communication

To also ask more questions so you get to the deeper issues others have

And lastly that week I asked us all to become word watchers – so we can do better with communication –

Speed Talkers
In our goal to think of words and speaking this last week of our communication month, let’s talk about the speed talkers – those people who go so fast you miss half of what they are saying and you feel tired when they’re through!

First of all – I am of the belief that a person can comprehend far more information that we can speak it at any speed. So the level of comprehension is not the issue. When someone is speaking rapidly and they are articulate it’s easy to understand them.

What we need to be aware of is when you or I speak so fast or uncontrollably that we slur or squish our words together. This makes us difficult to understand and also adding to the noise pollution that runs rampant.

How to be a great conversationalist? Finish your words – if you finish each word you will be understand by everyone – and the speed will be fine.

Note: Some people rush out of nerves – so in that case I say, “Take a breath!” and focus on what you want to relate or accomplish – when you focus on that instead of yourself you usually speak in a proper or good pace.

Today – watch your pace – it’s not a race!

You Create Your Day by the way you think! Make it Magnificent
