It is important to realize that no one is perfect in communication (Kanki, 2019). Throughout our lifetime, we all develop some patterns and habits of communication of which some are helpful while others are not because they create friction with other people. However, what is vital is how best we communicate and help other people to save time in our daily interactions. Different people have their way of communicating with others, but I think the right way to let others understand what you are communicating clearly:
Develop one conversation at a time
Some people argue that multitasking is excellent, but I think it is critical to focus on one specific conversation to enable others to have your full attention (Kanki, 2019). If you engage in more than one conversation, then it is likely to miss some critical aspects of what you intend to pass to others, and that makes a difference to the success or failure. I, therefore communicate with others by just focusing on one conversation and it makes me put undivided attention to other people while also making them feel worthy. It saves time if you focus on one issue because it is possible to get back and forth and add essential aspects that you might have forgotten.
Looking at some in the eye
Some people feel awkward especially when you look directly into their eyes during conversations; however, I prefer to look at people’s eyes during communication because it enables the conveyance of honor and truth (Kanki, 2019). It makes me develop a strong connection with the people during the communication process.
Some people fear to ask questions during communication, but I think it is the best way to seek clarification on what you might not have understood (Kanki, 2019). It is, therefore, important to ask others about some of the things you might not have understood because it enables you to save time since all issues get clarified accordingly.
