I had recently struggled with a lingering bout of laryngitis. I was incredibly frustrated, upset, and unhappy about it. That isn’t to say that I shut up. I gave two classes, conducted a podcast interview, and had countless coaching appointments (in person, by phone, and via Skype.)
What is wrong with me, you may wonder. Aside from my “non-stop” mentality, I really want to be listened to and heard. Ironic, huh?
Then one day, I just couldn’t say much. I chose my words carefully and made them as relevant and meaningful as possible. Something extraordinary happened – people paid more attention and got more out of it. Who would have thought it?
Now I am not going to resort to hoarseness. Instead, I have made it my goal to say things that are meaningful and relevant – knowing that more isn’t necessarily better, sometimes, it’s just more.
Have a great Thursday,
