I have become fed up with newer modern violent and brainless movies. And so, I am training my Amazon Prime not to show them to me. How do you do that? By searching specifically for movies that are over 40 years old. The more you watch old movies, the less that they show you that there are new movies filled with mindless violence.
So, over the weekend, I was watching George Segal and Barbara Streisand in The Owl and The Pussycat. One of the arguments in the movie was a line the writer placed in to his novel, “The sun spat morning into his face”. Now even though there was an argument for the sake of the plot, it really was quite the visual. Morning can arrive gently like a slight breeze. However, in this case, it arrived abruptly and shockingly.
This got me to thinking. Not just how I prefer older movies, it also got me to think about how I communicate.
As professional communicators, it is our job to experiment with different ways to get our point across. How do we communicate clearly, and concisely? How do we create a visual picture with our words that is moving to the recipient? That is what the best among us have done.
What can you do this week to find a better way to communicate?
