    Say it Like It Is

    Say it like it is in your heart and mean it! Then back it up with your actions! When you just say the words strongly and dont back it up with your  actions then your words are meaningless and worthless as you are. when you leave your mark on this earth or on your life's path...

    Time Is Valuable

    Why waste time. It is the most valuable resource that we have. I figured that if you live to be 80 years old you only have roughly 700 800 hours of life time. Why waste that with beating around the bush. Get to the point.

    Being Clear Is The Best!

    What's The Point Of Your Story?

    Please, anyone telling a story that is rambling and takes forever to get to the point is boring. I'll admit sometimes I go off on a tangent but I'll get back to the main reason why I am telling a story. Otherwise the result is I'll be confused and may tune the other person out...

    Hehe

    I even hate it when I get long winded. So many times lately my guy will rush me off the phone because I get diarrhea of the mouth, he will say, "wrap it up." and I know I have talked too long.

    Sorry...what?

    I wish people would just be blunt. Sure being elaborate may make you sound intelligent and eloquent, but it saves me time if you get straight to the point.

    I'm Tired, I'm Old, And I Don't Want To Play Guessing Games.

    My wife will try to make me guess what she is talking about, or angry about. Hello, I am no mind reader, I'm not real interested in getting bitched at when I just get home from work, and I probably don't need the information at that moment. Either get to the point or shut up...

    Just A Little Piece Of My Mind.

    Verbally Blunt

    Perhaps it's because i can be outspoken and rather blunt at times but i do wish people would get to the point of what they are trying to say, subtlety is useful but sometimes but it can't hammer a hypothetical nail into hypothetical wood.
