Communication

The more we elaborate our means of communication, the less we communicate.

J. B. Priestley

Let me start with this, I’m a lover of flowery prose and H.P. Lovecraft!! But when I’m being spoken to audibly, (especially when being given direction) I can not sit through the bullsh*t. I laugh writing this, because I love hearing people’s stories. I love listening. So that isn’t true all the time. I appreciate a good story told to me but I also appreciate candidness. I think it’s important to understand that we all communicate differently which also means that we need to be understanding when people don’t fully pick up what we’re putting down (especially the first few times). There’s typically differences in syntax, body language, tone, word choice, volume and so many other things

I read somewhere that leaders have to repeat themselves over and over again. That once we have said it so much our face is turning blue, is when the point finally starts to sink in. It’s not the best advice but I needed to hear that because now I know that I’m not the only one repeating myself (Just a reminder I’m a mother lol)

Communication is a complex monster that I’m always working on getting better at.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
