I just saw a link to a Harvard Business Review article by Jerry Weissman titled In Presentations, Kill Your Darlings.
I’ve talked a lot about being “concise,” but I’m not sure people know what that means.
So, here’s another way of saying it: GIVE THE SAME MESSAGE, BUT MAKE IT SHORTER.
In the spirit of keeping short, I’ll end with this: go read the post. This applies to anyone who communicates (written, oral, body language, etc. :p).
