From A Weak to Confident Communicator - 30 Day Challenge
When you are in a conversation, especially in a professional setting, you feel the need to provide an answer or a reply immediately. In a hurry to reply, you make a comment which isn't powerful enough.
Instead, if you had spent just 2 seconds to process your thought before saying a word, you would make a much better impression.
Today, you will pause to collect your thoughts before replying. Do not fear the pauses. As a bonus, pausing before answering makes you sound more confident and thoughtful. Embrace the pauses.
