Saying More with Less

Someone else’s blog post got to me. I have been discovered. I have been exposed. I am a….a….word-a-holic. There. It’s out. I have admitted that I have a problem with wordiness. My blog posts are WAY too long for most people to endure. Admitting I have a problem….that’s the first step to recovery, right?
 
If admitting I have a problem is the first step, then somewhere along the way has got to be a “why do I do it?” and a “how do I fix it?” I think I may be well on the road to recovery, because I have answers to both of those.
 
Why do I do it is answered with some of my BrainGym training. Ask a person to tell you about a familiar childhood story such as Red Riding Hood or Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  A logic dominant (usually left-brained) person will launch into the entire retelling of the story. Every last detail is important in responding to the request to “tell about” the story. The listener will be subject to everything from “blonde hair” to “someone’s been sitting in my chair” to “…and they are still in it!”
 
On the other hand, the same request made of a gestalt dominant (usually right-brained) person will yield very different results. The gestalt usually provides a big picture response such as, “There was a girl that broke into these bears’ house, fell asleep and was still there when the bears came home.”
 
Unfortunately for my readers, I don’t typically live in a gestalt world. I like details. They are very important to me, and I want to believe everyone else sees them as being just as important. Apparently that is not the case.
 
How do I fix it? Simple. I set a limit. My goal is to create blog posts of 500 words or less that still have signficant value for my readers. It won’t be hard. Most of my posts have covered way more than one topic. I have a lot to say, yet I will quite simply, simplify. I will use the power of less to say more. Let me know how I am doing in the coming weeks.
 
How about you? How would you tell someone about a favorite childhood story? Details or Short Summary?
