There is no doubt about it that even the best of relationships at times can be hard to hand. It won’t be wrong to say that the right chemistry between two people can only last longer if they communicate well with each other.
If you don’t pay attention to what your spouse wants to say then you will lose that connection with him or her and run the risk of finding yourself in a relationship where only you exist; such relationships don’t last very long.
Folded arms. This act may mean that your spouse is feeling closed off or defensive – he or she may be creating an unintentional distance between the two of you. Avoiding eye contact. This is universally seen as disinterest, feeling ashamed or finding the situation difficult.
Healthy relationships are built on honesty, so its vital that you’re honest with your spouse in order to get the same level of honesty in return. Making keystrokes matter has only grown in importance as communication and the text that powers it become increasingly inseparable. Since everyone in the company is responsible for communicating well, everyone is also responsible for writing well.
For essays, updates, announcements, emails, and more, herea€™s an abridged guide to writing with clarity and substance.
What makes for a boring novel is the same as what makes for boring non-fiction: the story grows horizontally instead of vertically. From there youa€™ll have enough to make the hard but necessary decisions about which points to expand and which to save for another day. If you dona€™t subsequently cut out 5, 10, or even 20% of your work in revision, have you really refined anything? Second to his investing talents, Warren Buffet is known for having a deep-rooted respect for clear communication within companies. When introducing the SECa€™s officialA Plain English Handbook, Buffet chose to offer up his a€?unoriginal but useful tipa€? to act as if you are communicating to a single person. Buffet usually writes with one of his sisters in mind, noting that while highly intelligent, she has little experience with investing. Stephen King suggests the same approach in his book "On Writing." Picturing his wife combing through each line, he found himself able to create around reactions. Writing to delight a single person whose tastes you understand is practical; writing to appease a faceless audience whose tastes you will never know is impossible. David Ogilvy famously said that once the advertising headline is written, youa€™ve spent eighty cents of your dollar. Never bury the lede.A Make the value proposition clear from the outset in everything you write. Avoid circular and repeated points.A a€?In other words,a€? you should just use those other words.
Structure cannot be an afterthought.A The best writing is that which pleases at a glance but further rewards careful study. Share Tweet Pin Stumble +1 Email ShareShares 15When it comes to his favorite computer games or shows he likes, Jacob talks endlessly.
Coming up with ideas was a little challenging, because he just wasn’t into talking about his day, especially when he got home from school. After browsing through their incredible selection for a good hour, I decided on two different products that looked like they would be a great way to get Jacob to talk to me about different things: Topic Talk and All About You, All About Me Fun Deck.
Topic Talk Conversation Card Game is a great way to engage your child (or children, since it’s even better with more people) in a variety of conversations by making a fun game out of it.
Each player gets seven conversation cards, and the goal is to be the first to get rid of all your cards. The thing I like best about the topics, aside from the variety, is the way they are phrased. While the Topic Talk Conversation Card Game is great when there is more than one person to engage in conversation, the All About You, All About Me cards allow for a little bit more of a free-flow conversation. One of the questions asked about a recent mistake that you may have made, and I discovered that Jacob was a little upset over an art project that he thought he goofed up.
Super Duper Publications has such an enormous selection of games and educational tools to help your child in so many ways. Subscribe To Our NewsletterJoin our mailing list to receive the latest news and updates from our team. Great management and clear guidance are not the only tools that a company can use to improve productivity and efficiency among employees. If you could change a few things on your project to vastly increase your chance of success, wouldn’t you do it?
Just like any other area of management, project management is bound to change its face during the upcoming year. We've gone through the topic of why use the mind mapping technique for your project management efforts before. Have you ever asked someone in your project team to do a task and know that they aren’t going to get round to it, however enthusiastic they sound at the time?
The recent PwC Global PPM Survey pointed out some interesting facts about the trends we’re seeing across project and programme delivery. Nail your project communications with these 7 methods: just pick and choose the right one for whatever your message at the time.
Project reports are probably the most common way to communicate with stakeholders, but they aren’t the only tool you have available to you. Project reports have a lot of good things about them and they are excellent for sharing a mix of hard statistics and narrative about what is happening on the project. Online tools are becoming more and more common for communicating with stakeholders, especially those that allow your team to log in whenever they feel like it and see the project status in real time. Watch out for: Not everyone understands what they are looking at when faced with a Gantt chart.
It’s a truism that the more senior you are in an organization, the more you like data displayed visually.
Look for new tools like Prezi and Canva to bring a bit of sparkle to your presentation if you are talking to a group of stakeholders. Good for: Communicating to large groups of stakeholders, ensuring everyone has the same message. However much you use online tools, sometimes you’ll have to communicate face to face. Good for: Dealing with difficult stakeholders, communicating to senior leaders who want to hear information in person, and tailored specifically to them. Watch out for: Being called into a meeting unprepared to present about your project can be a daunting thing.
If you have to catch up with a lot of stakeholders quickly, either to share information or to get updates from them, then the old-fashioned conference call has a lot going for it.
Watch out for: Set some ground rules at the beginning of your call or you will find people typing away in the background or talking to their colleagues while you are trying to brief them. Newsletters and the intranet are good for this because you can reach a wide audience with the same message.

I was interviewed yesterday by a researcher at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government for a case study on the role weblogs played in the downfall of Trent Lott. Another cool thing about driving to NY is when you get close enough to see big green Interstate highway signs that say New York City. We're getting close to June 14, when, last year, to people who read this site I just disappeared. Ed Cone links to a story from Mark Tosczak, a NY Times stringer, on getting credit for his work.
I've given Tim Bray his share of grief, but in this piece about the state of CSS, he nails it. Four years ago: "Salon (justifiably) brags that they've matured to the point where they could send a reporter to Yugoslavia.
Cory Doctorow reports on an Apple update that makes it so that iTunes can only stream to people on the same subnet.
On Thursday I'm giving a keynote at the Open Source Content Management conference, or OSCOM. There's been a bit of discussion about my last DaveNet piece, mostly users talking about what they're willing to pay, as if they have all the power. The power of the software developer not to develop is largely silent, so people don't consider it. A professional software organization for a well-supported product has 10-20 people, maybe as many as 30 to 40.

Let's say you spend 100 hours a year using a piece of software and assume your time is worth $50 per hour. I don't know if this means anything but there are no stories on Google News about Colorado Governor Bill Owens's veto of the state "Super-DMCA" law. Robert Wiener writes to say that searching for Colorado and veto gets a bunch of hits on Google.
Speaking of Google, I was kind of bored and wanted to see how my investment in John Doerr was doing, so I fired up Google, and lo and behold, my story is #3. I wonder why some weblogs so openly say things that are just plain wrong, that are so easily refuted, without presenting the opposing data, or even suggesting it might exist with a disclaimer like imho, or ymmv, or ianal. Most places I don't expect journalism, but some places I do, and they disappoint often enough to make it noteworthy.
One thread on a respected blogger's site gives the whole weblog tools market to one of the companies. BBC: "Jodi Plumb, 15, from Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, was horrified to discover an entire site had been created to insult and threaten her. Ellen Ullman: "To listen to Mr Engelbart that day almost five years ago was to realize that the computer industry, when it started, was not simply about becoming a chief executive or retiring on stock options at 35. Sjoerd: "It is noisy outside, and 2 riot police cars are racing by, because ADO Den Haag has won the 1st division soccer leage. Flying over Boston or NY it's astonishing how much real estate is used to house dead people. I was sitting in a law school cafeteria yesterday thinking how far away I was from the threat of terrorism.
Ben Edelman, a Harvard Law student and fellow at Berkman, has been studying Gator, one of the leading advertising servers.
Marketing Profs: "Blogs offer the human voice, which can be loud, controversial, and even wacky. A few people have suggested asking people to send Google API keys they aren't using and rotate them to work around the fatal flaw. BTW, some people said the Nikon took better pics than the Sony I use now, but I don't think so. Evan Hansen: "Paralyzed by fears of piracy, the record labels have taken years to get their act together for online distribution. Bloki is "a Web site on which you can create Web pages, right in your browser, with no additional software required. Microsoft's decision to support RSS without arguing over what it is looks smarter every day. Scoble, who works at Microsoft now, says he likes using a desktop app to write his internal weblog.

Therefore communication is the key to a healthy relationship, but not all of us know the art of communicating well. So pretty much,  the key here is to be patient and listen – let your spouse speak WITHOUT INTERRUPTION. You can do a number of things to deal with this; you could either change the conversation for the time being or discuss it later or you could tell your spouse that there is nothing he or she can’t discuss with you. Proper communication can only take place when you’re open about the bigger things in your life because even a small lie can put irrevocable cracks in your relationship.
Many tools we rely on each day a€” Gmail, Slack, Asana a€” would be empty shells without the words.
Having noticed something interesting, you now seek to direct the attention of the reader so that they might see it with their own eyes.
In "The Sense of Style," Harvard linguist Steven Pinker points out that smart people sour their thoughts through attempts to impress others. Stick to being straightforward, trust in plain language, and dona€™t use vocabulary to inflate weak ideas. Sculptors have marble and writers have ideas; ita€™s best to start with a block of material and whittle away to whata€™s needed.
His own shareholder letters are so well written that they are often considered the gold standard for the medium. Picking the right person and conveying your message with care will make what is fascinating to one enjoyable for many. If your objective and the readera€™s incentive are not obvious within the first few paragraphs, re-write them. Insight is memorable when it can be embraced directly a€” dona€™t pad it with a€?essentially,a€? a€?basically,a€? or a€?in other words.a€? Use the right words the first time.

Poor communication on a project can cause resource conflicts, overspending, rework and other inefficiencies that mean you end up taking longer and spending more than you really have to.
Seavus Project Viewer, for example, gives you online instant access to your project schedules without having to give every stakeholder access to Microsoft Project (which they probably wouldn’t use for anything else). You might have to explain what the software is telling them when a new stakeholder gets access to your online project schedule for the first time. They let you quickly plot out a few boxes showing, for example, how the project will achieve a return on investment or how the deliverables will help the company meet its objectives.
Whether you are standing up in front of a room or going through it sitting next to a colleague, the right data on slides can be powerful. Don’t prepare too many and make sure that you keep the words on the slides to a minimum.
Try to get as much notice as you can for face to face meetings so that you have a chance to put together a comprehensive story based on what the person wants to find out about.
Be clear about whether you expect them to be on mute and then to unmute when they have something to add.
Project communication is often focused on the immediate team and stakeholders who are immediately affected by the project. There's something for everyone, whether you like Bill Gates or Richard Stallman, or neither. Bragg's colleagues on the national staff had exchanged phone calls and e-mail messages, angered by comments from Mr. As OSCOM starts, the issues of interop betw content management tools is very hot in the open source world thanks to work by Paul Everitt and Gregor Rothfuss. Using my wingy-dingy new search engine, I found a great reference, a mini-article entitled Oh Lieberman, which should have been entitled Oy Lieberman.
Sure the original author may toil at a money-losing labor-of-love long past the point where it has been proven not to be viable, but what about the people he or she is not hiring, the manual writers, testers, more programmers, a sales person, a marketing person perhaps, to work on ease of use and to keep the website current. So when you hear yourself complaining about software quality, think about how much money the developer of the product has to fully support it. They link to one press release from the Music Indistry (sic) News Network commending the governor for the veto. BTW, I wasn't thinking Google might have been holding back, I was thinking the newspapers were.
Microsoft's developer program was kaput, everyone who was anyone wanted to develop for the Web, and that led them to Netscape and Sun, and away from Microsoft.
Being in a dead software market is no fun, even when you haven't signed on with the dying platform vendor.
He's got a Web app that simulates a Gator client, and sends messages back to Gator asking for ads to display on certain sites. Somehow MS has taught its people not to care about issues that are not related to success or failure of products. I've noticed that it colors how I think about them, not in a positive way, and felt I should disclose that, since I write about them here on Scripting News. To help you out with your problem here are three most important tips to improve communication between you and your spouse. It is as important to listen to your spouse’s views as it is to state your own  (again, work in progress). Tones could even get louder at times when your spouse is struggling to express his or her feelings.

Give them a hug or utter a few encouraging words to let them know they can always look you in the eye, but the key is not to push them to much; let them take their time. They spurn simplicity from a desire to prove that they are not bad scientists, lawyers, or academics a€” in doing so, they unwittingly prove they are bad communicators.
Since expressing ideas helps to form them, youa€™ll find sitting down to write creates perspectives you never saw coming. Captivating titles and hooks wona€™t soon lose their ability to move mountains (and millions).
No matter how grand a first impression you make, if it doesna€™t sustain, that counts as a loss. Youa€™ve made a mistake when you start using sub-headings like a€?In Conclusion.a€? There are far more compelling ways to communicate.
Consider he has a lot going on in his life, especially for a 7-year-old, I really needed to find a way to get him to engage more often with me about other topics.
You can connect with Super Duper by liking the company on Facebook, following them on Twitter,  subscribing on Youtube and checking out their Pinterest boards. Sitting down and chatting through a problem or asking for their advice is an essential part of project management and can help build effective working relationships with stakeholders and suppliers at all levels. But the rest of the company is also interested in what you are doing, even if it doesn’t change their working lives in any way. To me it was the day I quit smoking, and also the day I checked into the hospital (when I wrote that post I didn't know for sure I'd have to go into the hospital, but I wasn't surprised when I did). In my talk yesterday I said this was a species of software developer with a lot of power, a beast of the 80s, extinct this century. Before that I told the story of how XML-RPC came to be, and how Eric Raymond liked it so much. By making my position public about the equivalent issues in the weblog world, I will be joining with them in requesting that we put aside our differences (I'm not sure there are any) and establish a set of principles on how we build from here. Financiers invested, and gave back to the university so the next generation of technology entrepreneurs could be educated, nutured and launched." It wasn't clear that financiers invested in the companies started by the students, not in the work done at the universities. He met up with the proprietor of that site at a place in NYC called Alt.Coffee on Avenue A in Manhattan.
How about a couple of tech support people (so they can take a vacation once in a while, it's a tough job). When you buy a new computer you probably pay a few hundred dollars for software, most of it going to Microsoft. How much self-respect is there in paying nothing for software that leverages so much of your time? So even if you don't want to pay for the time-leverage software delivers, would you pay money to keep your money safe?
Is it based on features, or any deep understanding of how the products work, or the economics of the market? Hosting is a tricky business, as we found out, there are ISPs who now host MT sites that must somehow be included in their plans, yet there seems to be no mention of them in the FAQ.
Here's how I like to look at it -- formats and protocols are tools, details; the important thing is functionality delivered to users. Sometimes it may be difficult to put your differences aside and hear the other person out when you have your own views.
I was at a loss, though, trying to come up with interesting new topics to talk to him about that would get him to open up.
They can either use Talk to contribute a comment, Question to ask a question related to the topic, Double Talk to make two comments, or Wild to do any of the above. What you are working on aligns to the company strategy so your project should interest a wide group of people – everyone who cares about whether the company is going to hit its goals and how it is moving forward and staying relevant in the current market.
That's all there is to it, except when you really want to get it you should let just a hint of an R back. Shortly after my reappearance, Seth Dillingham said something really nice and very memorable. Apparently he went over his allotted time, I wanted to ask him to comment on the opportunities for open source projects to integrate with commercial software. I polished my skills as a user, and watched other people learn weblogs, saw what they got, and didn't. Then I hazarded a guess that if Eric had dinner with Bob Atkinson, one of the co-designers of XML-RPC, that they'd agree on a lot, and probably enjoy each others' company, even though Bob is a senior guy at (you guessed it) Microsoft. I've tried to explain the issues in non-technical terms, yet of course as soon as words like APIs and XML appear a lot of ordinary people tune out.
Some of them are great writers and have passion for the truth and aren't serving the same masters that the bigtimes at WSJ, NYT and CNN. It's about a 20-minute drive to the office, not as convenient as living in Cambridge, but very sweet. If you pay nothing for software, you probably won't die from it, but you may lose data, you're virtually certain to waste time, and at some point, money.
I have data that contradicts theirs, fairly superficial stuff -- why, on investigation didn't they uncover it? If there are any busdev people I need to talk with at Google, I guess now's the time to do that.
Enter Super Duper Publications, and their astonishingly massive selection of educational products.
He can tell me about Spiderman, about what he loves and how he wishes he could have superpowers like web-slinging from building to building. Also, reading the highway signs I kept seeing Oxford, which I wanted to write as a hex number: oXF08D.
And for sure, on May 31, 2002 I had chest pain, and was in denial on how sick I really was. I asked other people for ideas of what made weblogs different from professional pubs and Wikis. They still are, but after SOAP and XML-RPC they could just as easily be running on a server farm.
And most of them don't have websites, yet, largely because it is too complicated and expensive to have one. And if you pay $10 or $20 to use a piece of software, the software isn't paid for if the software isn't generating enough money to be fully supported or developed.
Why don't a small number of users of the popular weblog tools work together to create an authoritative review of the category and show us how the products compare. It takes better pictures than the Nikon if I actually have it with me when I see something photo-worthy. Unfortunately I don't have any money to pay them for this, but I'm afraid that's what they're going to want to talk about.
You can certainly feel good about giving the money, but you're probably not going to get what you want or think you deserve in the way of support or upgrades for that kind of money. I'm working on a taxonomy of weblogs for the two conferences I'm keynoting in the next two weeks.You can start there if you want but you probably don't need my help.
That's what I liked the most about Ringo, he needed a little help from his friends, and he appreciated it too. If you have a pain inside your chest where your heart is, go to see a doctor now, don't think you can exercise your way out of the corner. In other words, I did something rather unlike a weblog to try to get to the core of what one is. And get this -- this isn't just for Radio users, we created an open system that anyone can ping.
The first hit took me to a guy about the right age, living in about the right place, but on further inspection I noted that (gullp) he died.
Since there's no year on it, it's impossible to know if it's the Mitchell Stern I knew as a kid. Here I sit 4 hours by car from NY, if I want a good pizza, I have to go there, they don't make it here.
Think of all the bandwidth that's wasted by search engines looking for changes on pages that never change.
