It’s Not All About You

To communicate more effectively, and distinguish yourself from those around you, try communicating from the other person’s point of view.

We’re all basically wrapped up in our own stuff. That’s not selfish or Machiavellian; it’s just a fact. Our human nature is to be self-absorbed. It’s part of our survival instinct. As a result, most people communicate from their own perspective instead of the other person’s, and that’s the leading cause of poor communication. If you want to communicate more effectively, and distinguish yourself from those around you, communicate from the other person’s point of view.
