The Brave Keep it Brief

She’s dead.
We lost.
I’m leaving.

Phrases that are just two simple words long but with the power to changes lives forever.

We know how powerful our words can be.

So why, in our attempts to be understood, do we use more words than our listeners can process?

I dare you.

Try to deliver your message in as few words as possible.

I’m hurting.
It’s cancer.
You’re lying.

In our always-on world it takes courage to say something simply.

Please stop.
He’s gone.
It’s broken.

When we’re clear and direct we’re heard and understood.

I’m sorry.
It’s over.
The end.
