What does pasta have to do with public speaking? 1707 2560 I Need A Speaker

My husband and I often have conversations when one or both of us might be distracted. It’s easy to do.

We’ll be putting groceries away and mention a few items that were just unpacked from a bag. Then one of us might say something like, “Leave that out. It’s for dinner tonight.” Inevitably, the other person says, “Which one? We just named three items.”

With interpersonal communication, we are not always focused on the words we’re using and the clarity we’re able to achieve. We may be interrupted by a barking dog, giggling children, a phone call, or even our own thoughts.

When we focus on communicating with clarity all the time, we learn to say things like, “Keep the pasta handy. We’re having that for dinner tonight.” This time, there is no confusion as to which item shouldn’t be put away.

Getting into the habit of speaking with intention and clarity makes you more skilled at interpersonal communication and public presentation. (And the pasta is right where you need it.)
