105 STASHED IDEAS

Digital body language

Research shows that about 60% to 80% of our in-person communication is non-verbal, such as pacing, pauses, gestures, and tone. All these cues bring energy and an emotional touch to our message.


  • In the digital world, non-verbal language is expressed by punctuation and the use of emojis.
  • Other signals will include greetings - if you include a"Hello" or just jump in, and how you end your message.
  • In written exchanges, the timing of your response can cause anxiety. If you delay your answer, it may seem like a lack of interest.

1800s Science Fiction
  • 1818: Mary Shelley's Frankenstein tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, who engineers a living creature in a hideous experiment. The novel is seen as a warning against the expansion of science without a moral context.
  • 1870: Jules Verne's tale of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea is about the undersea adventures on the Nautilus. Verne imagined diving apparatus and a submarine.
  • 1895: HG Wells' The Time Machine is about time travel. It fuses science journalism with popular romance.

Before going to an interview, ask for unbiased feedback from your mentors, peers, family members and friends, just to gain some clarity. We usually would miss those true negative aspects due to our skewed state of mind.

An outside perspective shines a light on our hidden mistakes and the competencies and attitudes that we need to highlight. It helps to be honest about our fears and note down the feedback, working on your ‘interview performance’ later.

Email has real value in communicating the following:

  1. A formal communication decision.
  2. Confirming or scheduling appointments with the help of Calendar.
  3. Documenting important conversations.
  4. Company-wide announcements that are high-impact and need to be communicated to all in real-time.
  1. Active Listening Skills: People with social intelligence pay genuine attention to what the other person is saying. They make the other person feel understood and connected.
  2. Conversational Skills: Socially intelligent people are tactful, humourous, sincere, meaningful and appropriate in their conversations.
  3. Managing Reputation: The people are able to balance authenticity with a thoughtful reputation.
  4. No Arguing: People with social skills understand that arguing has no return on investment, and making the other person feel bad while proving something isn’t going to be of any benefit whatsoever.
