Everything Is Easier When You Communicate

Everything-is-easier-when-you-communicate

If you’re anything like me, you’ve got so much on your mind at times that it’s often easier to fixate on what didn’t get done than what did. For everything you cross off your to-do list, six more crop up. That one email with a quick question turned into a flurry of 20 emails, that simple project that you thought would knock out in a day has taken more than a few days, and, well, the list goes on. And suddenly all the things you swore you’d finally get done get pushed back. 

When Life Gets Busy, Communicate

Guess what’s one of the first things to fall to the wayside when life gets busy? Communication. (Yes, yes, you know me… you saw that coming.) It’s true in our personal lives and it’s true in our professional ones. The cruel irony of the human condition is that when most of us are the most stressed—and most in need of the support of our fellow human beings—we’re also the worst at communicating. 

But it’s all about priorities and awareness. Because here’s the simple truth: Everything is easier when you communicate. And even easier when you do it effectively. Those 20 emails? One phone call resolved the whole issue. That "simple" project? Going slow to go fast got it done in an efficient way. 

Go forth and communicate! I promise, your life’s about to get a whole lot easier...
