We Cannot Multitask!

Updated: Mar 31

We Can’t Do Two Things at Once!


Fred Miller, “NO SWEAT Public Speaking!”

Here’s this week’s post.

We Cannot  Multitask!

We can’t multitask, i.e. do two things at once. That’s why, if you use bullet points, the people are going to miss your message. Nobody came to your presentation to read your speech. And if they’re reading it, they are not listening to you.

Example: If you’re watching the cable news networks you’ll see a ticker tape, like this, right along the bottom sometimes. And if you’re reading that ticker tape, you’re not listening. You’re missing the story. You’re not hearing the interview.

Don’t Use Bullet Points!

And if you’re going to use other props, like this, take them away so they’re not a distraction. Because if they’re looking at your prop, they’re not looking at you. And we know: There’s content and delivery. Delivery trumps content. On the delivery side, nonverbal communication trumps verbal. You want them watching you. That’s how they’ll get your message!

This stuff works!
