“Don`t communicate to be understood; rather, communicate so as not to be misunderstood.”

 

However, I don't mind being misunderstood.

I think understanding each other is one of the most important things to do during a communication, as Steven’s insight mentioned a communication’s main goal is that both parties understand each other and make sure there is no misunderstanding, but a lot of people still thinks communication is a one way tunnel where one side give out information and make sure the other side totally understand it, how every that is not correct. I also think the 3 preparation questions is very important before starting a conversation, even when if its not inside a business there should be a preparation if you want the conversation to be effective. After reading the insight I also realise how communication can be a very easy thing if you look at it in a simple way, as long as your concept is right. Also I like the part about facial expression, I have a lot of experience when I have a conversation with others and just by looking at their face I want to end the conversation before it even started.
Charles Martell's curator insight, October 1, 2013 10:30 AM

This article talks about how simple communication is and breaking it down in to a few sentences so people can understand it even if you are a primary student. At first a quote that really catches my attention is “Don't communicate to be understood, rather, communicate so as not to be misunderstood.”

Guy Kawasaki’s 10 Social Media Tips for Authors | Mediashift | PBS | Communicating with interest | Scoop.it

Wrap your mind around this: One of the most important factors that traditional publishers use to decide whether to acquire a book is the marketing platform of its author. You’d think that the main reason for approaching a traditional publisher is to reap the benefits of the publisher’s marketing, and you wouldn’t have to bring your own. Life is full of mysteries, and whether you’re working with a traditional publisher or you are an artisanal publisher (a.k.a., “self-publisher”), the potency of your marketing platform can determine your success. There is no scenario under which thousands of social-media followers is not a good thing, so here are 10 social-media tips for authors of any kind....
