Landing a message on-the-fly

A key to learning to communicate with large groups is accepting that it is near impossible to perfectly land a message on-the-fly to any group greater than 5 people.

There’s always someone who is going to misunderstand your message or doubt your intent.

The benefit of this realization is that we give up on perfection, accept that mistakes are part of the process, and just focus on reflection and response.

That’s way more constructive than the alternative and results in us gradually improving the chances of landing a message the next time we try.
