Quote Of The Week: Be Brief Or Be Ignored
Stop being boring with these thoughts on brevity—and download the poster to put on your office door. The office blowhard will get the hint.
Every Monday, tune in to Fast Company Leadership for a quote to get your week started right.
This week’s quote comes from Joseph McCormack, author of Brief: Making a Bigger Impact by Saying Less.:

“Brevity is an essential skill that can propel people’s career in an age where the people that they’re talking to are overwhelmed.”

If you’re struggling to grab your audience’s attention—on the Internet or in the board room—say more with less.
Here’s how to avoid a longwinded rant, from Lisa Evans’s article “Less Is More: Why You’re Saying Too Much And Getting Ignored:”
