Communication in the face of the technological revolution is of prime importance. If you can communicate effectively, both personally and professionally, you will be able to increase your efficiency and form better relationships. Our lives depend on communication. However, there is such a thing as over communication.
It is our duty to express ourselves by giving due importance to the process as well as the individual but excessive communication can be a major source of time drain. Therefore, in order to maximize utilisation of time, we need to communicate effectively in a concise manner.
Everything about us is a form of communication. From what we say to what we wear, we are always in dialogue. Let’s make the dialogue crisp, clear, and concise!
Technology & Expression
Expressing yourself through technology can be extremely easy if seen superficially. As you peel the layers off this method of communication, you realise the level of complexity that lies underneath. We need to use technology-supported platforms to communicate effectively and not endlessly.
On the face of it, we might find it very easy to pick up a phone, or type a message or an e-mail.
However, there has to be a systematic method to it. For instance, it might be alright to call a colleague regarding an urgent matter. But it will seem unprofessional to call a colleague and drone on about the day at office. Since the niceties of this form of communication are still being outlined, people seem to be running amok. We must learn to practice restraint and maintain decorum while expressing ourselves in person or through the medium of technology. To make the most of what technology has to offer, we need to utilise the right form of communication via the right channel as well.

The Importance of Your Words
Every word you use has an impact. Please take a moment to mull this over. Every single word you use has an impact – not just on the listener but also on the consequences. Everything you have or don’t have at this very moment is a direct result of your communication.
The Significance of Strong Communication
The need for good communication cannot be overstated. As human beings, we communicate on a daily basis both personally and professionally. It is important to handle this facet of our daily routine with maximum caution. We should be cautious about the words we choose. We need to understand that too little or too much of your written or verbal word may have a negative impact on the person on the receiving end. However, we should not refrain from communicating. We should be able to distinguish between speaking too much and speaking up.
