When all else fails

When all else fails

Most people want to make a good first impression (or second, or third…), but they do themselves a disservice by talking too much. I see this in job interviews, introductions, elevator speeches, sales pitches, etc.

When all else fails, stop talking. Make your point and then move on.

We’ve all heard that we should “stop kicking a dead horse,” yet we persist. Perhaps we should stop and take the pulse of the horse before we continue babbling on. Another option is to take a long breath. Others will be delighted to have a moment of silence as well as time to respond.
