Following tips on how to communicate or write well can make it mechanical and boring. For example, "When you're speaking to a crowd, vary the pace and the tone of your speech." It is correct but doesn't necessarily make sense in terms of how you're relating to the people you're talking with.

Instead of a using tips, use a process. It can transform you so the tips take place automatically. The source of a pause or the volume of your voice should because you are relating to your audience.

Try to say only three important things

When you have four or more points to talk about, eliminate them or see if you can add them to other things, so you have only three points. 

Three things are all we will remember well without reading them. Your audience will also not remember more than three things, so stick to three.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
