Don’t raise your voice. Improve your argument. – Desmond Tutu
If you’re not enjoying the rewards…
If you’re not eliciting the responses…
If you’re not experiencing the results…
Don’t do this.
Don’t just try more.
Don’t just try louder.
Don’t just try harder.
And definitely don’t do this.
Don’t just get more people to do what you’re doing.
Don’t just use more “channels” to say what you’re saying.
Don’t just try more social media outlets to promote what you’re promoting.
Become a better artist.
Become a better writer.
Become a better parent.
Become a better spouse.
Become a better teacher.
Become a better speaker.
Become a better musician.
Take a class. Follow a blog. Go to a conference.
Read a book. Find a mentor. Watch a YouTube video.
Study your craft. Practice your art. Adjust your approach.
Do whatever you have to do to get better.
The big idea is this:
When no one’s listening to what you say,
pursue a more effective way.
Your message is worth it.
