Review, Edit, Repeat

When preparing a talk, how many times do you review or edit it? How many times does a director watch a movie she is making? How many drafts does a writer have of his latest novel? You know where am I getting at.  But I'll say "Juan, I'm not a professional speaker! This is not my real job, I have more thing more important to do!" Well, I have bad news for you. If you are reading these lines, it might be that communication is fundamental to your job. In fact, your might be complaining right now, this month, or the coming one about your company's management bad communication skill and know that's affecting you. But seriously, how good are you at communicating if you don't review your material or you don't edit it enough? Let that sink in.
