Friday Advice: What I really meant to say

In every day communications, as well as those formal documents we write, we often find ourselves not saying what we meant. Sometimes the communication problems are caused by typos and grammatical errors, but sometimes it is because we are not clear ourselves about what we should communicate.

Today talk a moment to review your web site, your project site, your signature file, your bio...whatever...and ensure that you understand what you are trying to communicate and then check to see if that is what you are communicating. Make sure that you are being clear.

Unsure if you are being clear? Get feedback from your clients, your patrons, and your friends. Remember that you aren't communicating well if your reader/listener does not understand you.
