One simple communication trick will improve your day

Let’s face it; we’re all a bit rubbish at communication. Even those of us who think we’re amazing can learn to be more effective, and I promise you, every high flyer has a blind spot. There’s always a person who we forget to keep in touch with.

In my case, there are many people I always forget to remember, and it’s so annoying because communication is something I pride myself on being good at. Anyway, you’ve clicked on this post for a piece of advice, and here it is – one simple communication trick, which will make a difference to you, and the person you’re talking to.

“Say hello, when you think of it.”

There are so many ways to improve your communication; to be honest, it’s a never-ending story. Still, if you want to improve in this area, this is a great place to start. Let’s do it together right now.

Think of someone you’ve not been in touch with for a while. It doesn’t have to be a deeply profound relationship, but think of that person, and if you’ve got any contact info for them, send them a quick message, a nice gif or a voice message now. If you’re not sure what to say, try this…

“I was just reading this blog post about talking to people we want to be in closer touch with, which made me think of you, so I just wanted to say hello :)”

I guarantee you, the person on the other side of that message, will absolutely love it.

One final thought…

If you’re reading this thinking, “but I feel so anxious about communication!” I hear you. That’s why you shouldn’t think about this too deeply. Grab your phone, rip off the band-aid, and make someone’s day.

It might make your day too.
