Dealing with cold callers

If you don’t recognize the number, you can choose not to answer the call.

If you choose to answer, try to be concise, but nice with cold callers. They spend their days dealing with people who don’t want to talk to them.

Get into the action habit. We do the thing by deciding to do the thing.

  • Take the time to consider the fact that you’re really avoiding something.
  • Decide to do it, and then don’t waver. Don’t let yourself argue about it. When you decide to do it, just commit and do it.

The learning zone of Demosthenes

Demosthenes, the greatest orator in ancient Greece, did activities designed for improvement.

  • He studied a lot: law, philosophy, and great speeches and acting.
  • To get rid of the habit of involuntarily lifting his shoulder, he practiced his speeches in front of a mirror, with a sword suspended from the ceiling so that if he raised his shoulder, it would hurt.
  • To speak more clearly despite a lisp, he went through his speeches with stones in his mouth.
  • He built an underground room where he could practice without interruptions, but since courts at the time were very noisy, he also practiced by the ocean, projecting his voice above the roar of the waves.
