30 seconds Speech-how long you take to prepare it ?

Wilson was once asked how long it took him to write a speech. He answered, ‘That depends. If I am to speak 10 minutes, I need a week for preparation. If 15 minutes, 3 days. If half hour, two days. If an hour, I am ready now.’  Woodrow.t.Wilson

If you could make a 30 second speech to the entire world, what would you say?

One particular 30 second speech is inspiring.

“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them – Work, Family, Health, Friends and Spirit and you’re keeping all of these in the Air.

You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four Balls – Family, Health, Friends and Spirit – are made of glass. If you drop one of these; they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for it.”

Work efficiently during office hours and leave on time. Give the required time to your family, friends and have proper rest.

Value has a value only if its values is valued.

The above  30 second speech is  by Bryan Dyson-Former CEO of Coca-cola

I felt it is really tough job to prepare instant 30 second speech.

What is your 30 second speech to your fellow bloggers if you are able to give one?

Are you a Non-stop ( Big ) Talker or a Patient Listener ?

 

Big talkerNon stop talking vs Silent hearingIf you re one of those,fortunate to watch any of the news channels ( especially English news channels) in India,where participants number can almost reach magic No 10, and  it won’t take much time to realise how noisy and chaotic it is.( I am not sure why in the first place,so many people are invited to participate,instead of two to three  )

1.Here every participant including the anchor talks loudly.
2. All talk simultaneously,
3. All screaming and
4. Shouting,
5. Participants Even abusing each other .

The viewer is confused regarding  the topic, and not sure why participants are arguing.

The issue on which discussion is happening, becomes irrelevant due to  digression,everybody going crazy, and viewer’s Blood Pressure rising at the end and helplessly the viewer moves to the next channel.

Here instead of debate there is a competition as to whose decibel is strongest.

May be it is the way of  Civilised Debate sans debate.

I started wondering  whether one has to be a Big Talker or a good Listener.

Ask anybody, whether they are good listeners,invariably they say  ‘YES’ ,contrary to the fact. Majority Love talking endlessly about themselves ( I talk-you Listen syndrome ) till the other becomes restless.

Loud Talker

“Some people believe that being the loudest in the room makes them look strong. It may appear that way to a few uninformed individuals. What they don’t know is the more they talk, the more information they reveal about themselves (directly and indirectly). They become an easy target, and it makes them very vulnerable to attacks. Do not underestimate the power of silence.”
Izey Victoria Odiase

One has to pay attention to the topic,about which the discussion is happening and also the content of the talk of other person explaining.

How can one become a good listener ?

  • Stop  talking.
  • Concentrate on what is said.
  • Be patient.Don’t over speak on the other
  • Ask relevant questions
  • Don’t change the subject.
  • Think before responding.                                                                                                    Big talker vs Good listener                                                                                                                                                                Big talker vs Silent Listener                    Finally ‘Destroying Ego‘ of the individual makes all the difference.
