If you take a bunch of energy, focus it and then release it with a purpose in one direction, you have the laser beam principal at work. It is this principal that I want to discuss and not the technology. People who receive specialized training in anything get to practice this when they unleash that training in application and operation
The military, N A S A and other fine "cutting edge" large groups use it in communications. Short, to the point bursts of acknowledgments and or transmissions that get things done. Error is reduced and optimum obtained..
STAKES ARE HIGH...SO IS THE COMMUNICATIONS TOO
On our 5 billion dollar nuclear submarines, a order is given straight to the point and then repeated and carried out. N.A.S.A wastes no words when speaking to astronauts piloting billions of dollars of equipment. There is no "filler" discussion or chatter that can promote confusion or misunderstanding.
PUBLIC SPEAKERS WHO DON'T LASERIT OUT
Sometimes I encounter people who do the opposite and drag out a point that they have already made or are failing to make the point and become redundant. I simply interrupt and state..can you laser that out please?
GET TO THE POINT
Get to the point is what a laser beam does. You turn it on and it instantly travels with a purpose from its point of origin to its aimed point. The accomplishing of the purpose is primary and carried out. Nothing else is required
REAL ESTATE EXAMPLES
My escrow officer does this very well. She will hear me laser something out, then laser her response right back. Refreshing to say the least. Title does the same thing too.
DON'T DO THIS AT HOME
In my early marriage years, I practiced this communication with my wife and promptly learned the lesson of sleeping on the couch more than I cared to. DO NOT LASER with your spouse. Here, dragging things out and even repeating them buys a lot of good will and cozy moments
BACK TO BUSINESS
Anyone who has savvy and wants to launch that into action lasers out the point and makes the gain. many professional people find it refreshing and respond accordingly. A few quick random exchanges like this and one feels the progress and forward movement in whatever they are doing
