Speak Clearly and Softly To Get Someone’s Attention

1 Corinthians 14:9

So also you, unless you utter by the tongue speech that is clear how will it be known what is spoken?


It’s all about communication. You can have a brass band and fireworks but if they don’t understand what you’re saying you lost.

Remember that old perfume ad,” If you want to get someone’s attention just whisper”. Whispering can be a really effective tool to use. Remember that time you had laryngitis and people had to really pay attention to understand you?

Speak clearly and softly to get people’s attention. The whole point of this communication business is that you want to be heard, and in hearing, understood. You don’t have to be a genius or a great showman to get your words across to people. Just speak clearly and precisely, that’s all it takes.

  1. Try this formula next time you want to get something across to someone.
  2. Know what you want to say and then simplify it.
  3. Calmly speak the words and only those words to get your point across.
  4. See how it works.
