Favorite quote: “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place”.

Favorite quote reasoning: “Math is logical. It is often accompanied by factors, sequences, exponents, and often relies on specific equations and solutions. It does not waver in its meaning and interpretation. Communication, however, is the closest thing to magic that exists in the real world. It impacts relationships, leadership, behavior change, and shapes our lived experience while providing insights into other human lives. It gives voices to the voiceless and is the bridge between confusion and clarity. Communication serves as a worldwide catalyst where humans can express meaning. Plus, good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after. And who doesn’t like black coffee?” – George Bernard Shaw

My favorite communication framework: The Narrative Paradigm by Walter Fisher.

The most important communication lesson I’ve learned is: You cannot not communicate.
