Misunderstandings

George Bernard Shaw wrote:

"The single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place"

Misunderstandings of: ′I could have sworn you said that′ to: ′I am sure that is what I heard;′ are the root cause of most communicative issues from small tiffs to big disputes...

The added challenge is that it seems that people seem to be on the actual look out for the ′slight′ that may be inferred in what is said...

There are 3 simple keys to avoid all the hassles with being misunderstood and they are.

1. Be yourself, above all, because it is the best method to influence others.

2. Make certain you really mean what you say, so that you communicate what you mean.

3. Never ever speak when angry, even if you literally have to remove yourself from a situation.

For me communication can be simply defined: Make others feel valued, without devaluing yourself.

Above all it is worth remembering that more is communicated without words than with them.
