less noise means more signal :: be direct

April 29, 2011

If you want to ensure clearer communication, cut the clutter out of your message by saying what you mean to communicate in as few words as possible.

If you want your message to be clear, say what you mean to say using fewer words.

If you want to be clear, communicate with fewer words.

To be clear, use fewer words.

Use fewer words.

Psalm 24:7 & Luke 10:42 >> Like David, and Mary, I'm in pursuit of my one thing. I'm the Pastor at St. Olaf Lutheran Church in Montgomery, IL. Pastor, teacher, writer, communicator, designer, and drummer. I definitely got the better deal in my marriage to Amy. And I couldn't be any more proud of my five amazing boys. Deeply grateful.

  2. Amen brother! There is a need for more direct communication today. It’s hard enough to get people to respond to God’s word, but if they have to first understand what we are trying to say about the word through all of the babble, we so often just get people lost in our words.
