SHORT BUT SWEET – WHY WE NEED TO SHUT UP AND SPEAK MORE

When Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables was being published in Paris during 1862, he was out on a vacation. Curious to know how the sales of his book, he sent a brief telegram to his publisher.

And the publisher responded equally brief, indicating that the sales is good.

The entire lot printed for Paris had sold out.

Ah, that reminds me of the movie Predator. The way by which these guys communicate while on mission has sunk deeply into my brain. I thought, maybe that’s how guys behave when they have a strong affinity towards accomplishing a goal. They do shit and talk very less. They communicate what is important and they make sure that the other person understands what is said.

The absence of clarity in communication has wreaked havoc in our society resulting in countless fights amongst couples, disorganized organisations and an alarming increase in the rise of unnecessary guidance counsellors and an extreme lack of communicating with self, leading to all kinds of mental chaos.

Well, I do not want to sound like an unwanted guidance counsellor, but It is in my mind to write about this some time. I am glad I finally got through it.


It is not the intention of this article to make people talk less, but rather the opposite.
The world would be a much better place if people communicate and make sure that the other person understands, than letting words fleet in air, uselessly.
