Tell the truth.
Say something meaningful.
Get to the point.
Be done. Quit talking.
Too often, people don’t have much to say, but that doesn’t stop them from speaking. They ramble on and on without adding anything of value. Somehow, they think that the length of their words will somehow add to the meaning. It doesn’t.
This is true when you are making a presentation, having or conversation, or even saying a prayer.
