"Seven deadly sins of speaking to avoid" 1) gossip -> I need to work on this sin 2) judging -> I need to work on this sin 3) negativity -> I need to work on this sin 4) complaining -> I need to work on this sin 5) excuses 6) lying (embroidery, exaggeration) 7) dogmatism (confusion between fact and opinion) 2. what I need to say: four powerful cornerstones of speech to make a change in the world c.f. "hail means to greet or acclaim enthusiastically" 1) H: honesty (be clear and straight) 2) A: authenticity (be myself) 3) I: integrity (be my word) 4) L: love (wish them well) 3. how I need to say: tools to play with to increase power of my speech 1) register: e.g. if wanting weight, lower pitch of voice 2) timbre: the way voice feels e.g. breathing, posture 3) prosody: rhythm (e.g. not monotone) 4) pace: e.g. slow to emphasize 5) pitch: e.g. make pitch high or low 6) volume: e.g. louder to emphasize 4. exercise the following before making a presentation 1) arms up to sigh out with ahh 2) lips with ba ba 3) lips with brrr 4) tongue with la 5) tongue rolling an r 6) siren from we to aww

Micah Buzan : If these types of interpersonal skills along with mindfulness meditation were taught in schools, we would live in a much more sane world. Intelligence isn't just about memorizing facts.

Robert Lee, Countertenor : My only problem is that if I have to constantly SELF MONITOR what I'm saying to someone, it feels completely calculated and not genuine. Eventually u are going to complain. Eventually you are going to be negative. It cannot be all sunshine. All sunshine is a fake, good two shoes, inhuman robot. And u will never get to know someone that way.

NothingMaster : Excellent talk! It shared many useful and practical techniques that are bound to help anyone. The content of the message and the quality of the vocal delivery are exceedingly important, but they are not the only mechanisms by which one could entice people to listen. I've found that there is a hidden amplifying magnet in that tool box that could exact a considerable impact on how willing people would be to listen to what you have to say---especially, when addressing smaller audiences---and that is 'eye contact'. In an increasingly fast-paced and impatient world, it has become a serious challenge to grab and maintain people's attention long enough to communicate an idea. The short attention span could be greatly remedied using effective eye contact strategies. For example, I have tried to deliver the same talk to the same audience with and without effective eye contact and the difference between the two strategies has been quite dramatic. When you don't establish effective eye contact with your audience, you quickly lose them to the bouts of distraction and impatience.
