Importance of communication
Miscommunication is the most important part of communication😀
As per me, communication, for it to be effective, should have the following steps:
1. People think and feel.
2. As they think and feel, a thought process starts.
3. This thought process at one point generates an idea.
4. This idea is then converted to steps that have a beginning, middle and an end.
5. Communication is these steps.
Simple, right? Not so simple. One of my good friends say that I am borderline autistic. Haha, am not sure about that. However, the steps that I should follow take a twist. I somehow end up saying the end first. Not only that, I go 10 steps further down the process to the end game. This disconcerts people because they have no idea what the hell I am talking about😀. No wonder life for people round me is chaotic.
I am not the only person with communication issues. A lot of people in this world have the same problem. We are too vague for our own good😀.
I have been thinking about it a lot and have an idea. In our vision building workshop, we explain that a vision should not be more than a sentence and should be easily understood by a 12 year old.
Why shouldn’t communication be the same? Why cannot we summarize everything into a single sentence? If we cannot, can we make ourselves understood by a 12 year old?
Hahaha! It’s going to be difficult, at least for me😀. But, am willing to try! But, I need simple steps for this to work. So, what do I do? As a first step, I am going to read up on simple communication. Then, I am going to implement some steps.
So, please await my next blog on this topic!
