Don't Explain Too Much

Don't Explain Too Much

Focus on the bigger picture, instead of explaining in length every nitty-gritty detail, which people will find hard to absorb.

Too much information can dilute your message.

Effective And Clear Communication

The 4 principles to effectively communicate complex concepts:

  • Start off in the right place
  • Don't explain too much
  • Go for clarity over accuracy
  • Explain your motivation.
Start In The Right Place

Everyone's got a different background, everyone's got a different set of knowledge, and it's our job to explain the information in terms that they already understand.

As you start to explain, ask questions like "Is this making any sense?" And don't worry too much about whether you're telling the audience something they've already heard before. 

Clarity Over Accuracy

Being extremely accurate isn't that important as being clear, concise and simple.

A basic understanding of a concept, if done right, can later be built upon for a more comprehensive picture.

Explain Your Motivation

Personalize your subject by letting the listener know why you think it is cool.

Show your enthusiasm, and your motivation. They are contagious.

IDEAS

Match your gestures to your words.
We are visual creatures, and any movement used in the right way in this direction will spark the attention of your audience. Just try not to abuse this rule.

Secretly, you don’t want to do it; you just think you should want to do it. You value it for the wrong reasons. If you’re only coming up with extrinsic reasons for your activity or goal, you may decide that it’s not worth pursuing.

How to outsmart it: Think of your intrinsic reason — the motivation behind why you’re doing what you say you want to do — like your own personal energy source.
