  • This & That

Have you ever thought about the time when you could see the finish line onto whichever thing you were doing which required verbal skills, but some words were repeated and nothing happened and all was back to start? This will help you speak beautifully. Be it on phone, one-on-one, in group or most significant prospects which are interviews, meetings, recruiting or, whilst pitching a new client.
Here are few ideas on how swap few words from your word bank to be more effective and an intellect.

1. That
If you look at your day to day conversations or email which has been enlisted, you'll find a pattern in which you've used 'that'. Replace it with Who, Which, It. Depending upon the situation or relation of sentence. For example, "I have friends that work in recruiting industry". Use 'Who'. Don't use that when you refer to people.

2. Went
I went to a concert. Or to church, or to a conference, to New York, wherever it is you're persuaded to go. Instead of went, you should consider drove, walked, ran, swam, flew. There are numerous ways to move from point A to B. Pick one. Don't be a slug. You'll miss out chance to tell your story

3. Honestly
People use honestly for weight. The problem is, the minute you tell your reader this statement is honest, you've implied the rest of your words were not.

4. Absolutely
Adding this word to most sentences is laid off. Something is either necessary, or it isn't. Absolutely necessary doesn't make it more necessary. If you recommend a vital course to your new employees, it's essential. Unexpectedly, the definition of essential is absolutely necessary. Chicken or egg, eh?

5. Very
Precise adjectives don't need qualifiers. Need to qualify it? Replace it. Very is used to amplify a verb, an adjective, or another adverb. What it does is makes your statement less definite. If you're very happy? Be ecstatic. If you're very sad, perhaps you're gloomy or depressed. miserable, even. Very sad is a lethargic way of making your point. Another drawback of using very as a modifier? It's subjective. Very cold and very tall mean different things. Be exact. She's 5'9" and it's 10 degrees below freezing? These make your story better while also certifying the reader understands the point you're making.

6. Really
Unless you're from old school, visiting from 80's, there's no need to use really to modify an adjective. Or a verb. Or an adverb. Pick a different word to make your point. Do not ever repeat really, or very for that matter. That's horrible writing.
If you are visiting from 85, Please bring Rock'n'Roll on your next visit. Thanks.

7. Amazing
The word means "causing great surprise or sudden wonder." It's synonymous with delightful, unbelievable, staggering, astonishing, remarkable, miraculous and mind-blowing. You get the picture, right? It's everywhere. It's in corporate slogans. It subjugated the Academy Awards acceptance speeches. It's all over social media
Newsflash: If everything is amazing, nothing is.

8. Always
Absolutes lock the writer into a position, sound conceited and close-minded, and often open the door to condemnation regarding inaccuracies. Always is hardly true. Unless you're giving written commands or instruction, find another word.

Whether you're ghostwriting for your CEO, updating a blog, selling a product, or writing a corporate email, you need to keep your reader involved. These Few words are a great place to start trimming the fat from your prose. Bonus? You'll sound niftier. Like I do.
