    Less Confusion

    When writing memos to supervisors and employees, we need to be sure they are clear. After editing a memo and before sending it out, a wise thing may be to send it to a secretary or a person who has trouble understanding. This would help keep words at a minimum but the message clear. King Solomon in Proverbs 10:19 says that in the multitude of words, sin is not lacking. His suggestion is that we are wise when we restrain our words.

    In preparation for a meeting, we need to have the purpose or goal clearly in our mind. If we are not sure where we are headed, our listeners will unconsciously get the same feelings, causing confusion. Our actions create the same confusion when we proclaim integrity, but on occasions cheat or show favoritism. The mixed message creates confusion and mystery around our proposed projects and fogs up our role model. We can loudly proclaim honesty, but like children they will practice what we do, not what we say.

    So it sounds like our words should be sparse like President Woodrow Wilson’s and our actions should be good like Jesus’. This is the way to reduce confusion in our company and associates.
