Conversation Killers

Words are like keys that can make or break a conversation. Some words look absolutely okay to us, but can kill a conversation if they sound mechanical or are overused.

Words like Awesome, Right On, Fantastic, Fabulous, if overused, sound fluffy and mechanical, with no warmth or feeling behind them.

Conversation Killers: Asking For An Outside Perspective

  • You can be conscious of what you type in your emails and phone messages, it pays well to have a large vocabulary at your disposal.
  • If you overuse a word, or say a ‘pet’ word without even realizing it, you may have to break the habit by taking help from a colleague, friend or family member.
  • The person who gets your message, who may be a new friend or an acquaintance, can feel as if you are being sarcastic, or may have misused a word, which they may or may not correct you. They may even think they have missed part of the conversation.
  • Too many fluffy words also drown out the actual conversation. If you go on and on, the message you are trying to convey gets diluted.

Sharing Personal Information

  • The more you talk, the more personal information is divulged. Your likes and dislikes, thought patterns, preferences, everything is exposed.
  • It feels good and comforting to talk if the other person is listening, but good communication is never about talking too much.
  • Say less and listen more.

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

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

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!

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

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!
