The other day, I came across an article about the mycorrhizal network – an intricate system of plant survival and communication. The most silent and selfless beings on this planet have rather ‘magical’ root channels to not only transport nutrients but also act as essential messengers of 4-legged threats and the climate. The rustling of leaves is much more than sounds filling seconds. Chemicals and sounds such as liquid bubbles popping under the ground, inaudible to the human ear is how these peaceful breathers talk.
In spite of us having an inbuilt massive processing power, we have turned ourselves into physically deft systems. Our inefficiency to use to the fullest of what lies within us, an entire powerhouse of words woven with emotions, intrigues me. Egos and self-developed vanilla personalities for a multitude of reasons restrict us from conveying to one another our thoughts.
Occasionally, the best way to communicate is to shut-up. But during other times, our propensity to superbly craft expressions can be easily used to attain the entrails of the mind and heart. Tones may be misread; Intentions-misunderstood. Although, these should not turn into reasons to hold back. Trivial rationale as one climbs up the ladder to become nonpareil are bound to occur in all walks of life. But, simply sharing a few pages of your book would make you appear socially acceptable, uncomplicated and above-board.
To sum it up, SPEAK IT OUT. Couldn’t comprehend your client’s message? – get a clarification. Like someone? – go tell them already! You get my point. Now go ahead, communicate better.
