This humorous and motivational poem by Taylor Mali, makes us think about how we speak. Through the amazing typography and messaging, we’re reminded to speak with conviction and certainty. Let’s stop looking at our phones, texting partial sentences, and limiting our messages to twitter-friendly lengths. Instead, let us ask thoughtful questions and embrace dialogue.
Looking at this video, I’m also reminded of how important visuals are when we’re communicating a message. Teachers and trainers know this well. When we activate multiple areas of the brain–through sight, sound, smells, physical movement, laughter, emotions, etc. –learning becomes infinitely more memorable.
