Sarah Palin, whether you love her or hate her, has taught us all a good lesson this week.

  1. Be confident and clear before you talk.
  2. The number of words (and ums and ahs) used increases the likelihood you will be misunderstood and sound uneducated.

My friend, John Windle, calls Sarah’s recent Paul Revere incident, word salad. A bunch of jumbled up words in place of clear knowledge.

Power comes from a few clear words.  When asked about Paul Revere “The British are coming!” would have sufficed.

Listening and asking questions is an excellent path!
