3–2–1; Sfumato — Reaching Creative Potential

3 Ideas, 2 Quotes, 1 Question.


I. Always Say Less Than Necessary

The Risks

  • Making terrible blunders that could’ve been avoided
  • Exposing a great secret
  • Being laughed at and humiliated

Action Points

  • You learn more by listening — because you are able to take in information from other people.
  • You can observe more — Saying less gives you the chance to observe body language, and other actions that may have gone unnoticed.
  • You can think before you speak — by always saying less, you can be sure that you’ll choose your words far more carefully. This also will ensure that you never give out too much information.
  • You command respect — the person who only speaks when they have something powerful to say is always well-respected.

II. The Mind Is All Yours
