Being clear in what you are saying is becoming a critical mission in our world. I have made clarity one of my missions this year. One of the causes of the world problems today is communication, clarity in what you say, how you say it, and being responsible for it. Using the correct tense in your writing and make sure you think about others before you write something. Lack of clarity leads people to assume and interpret what you mean, unless you can defend it, better be clear from the start, I have learned.
People are not you, some read emotionally, they are not in your brain and cannot get what you mean, unless well articulated or explained.
Of course languages, cultural differences, upbringings, education will play an essential role in this, we interpret and understand things differently, but I just think that trying to listen and collect lots of information before saying something will help us make a great progress in the years to come. Asking questions are wonderful; it helps clean up the misunderstood and assumptions. Curiosity is a sign of intelligence. Leaders must be accountable on what they say and do. People will only respect you if you keep your promise and commit to your words. Your words are who you are.
Have a good week…
