The challenge of communicating effectively on Twitter can actually help us to be better communicators. We’ll look at that in our Thought of the Day. Then in the second segment, we’ll look at a few powerful tweets and then expound on them a bit in order to attain an even deeper understanding. That and more on today’s show.
Bob’s Thought of the Day
- Why Twitter can be a hotbed for misunderstandings, hurt feelings, and an insult or two.
- The importance of caring enough to ask ourselves how what we are about to say (and how we are about to say it) will likely be interpreted by the other person.
- Why we must train ourselves to communicate in a way that works for everyone involved.
You’ll discover several timeless, wisdom-filled quotes and why they are so powerful:
- “Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.” –Ruth Bader Ginsburg, former United States Supreme Court Justice
- “Excellence is not an ‘aspiration.’ Excellence is not a ‘hill to climb.’ Excellence is the next five minutes. Or it is nothing at all.” –Tom Peters, author of The Excellence Dividend
- “The older I grow the more apt I am to doubt my own judgment.” –Benjamin Franklin, inventor, printer, and United States diplomat
