The most important skill

In my readings this week, I came across two statements I thought we’d spend a little time discussing this week. The first statement is from Stephen Covey’s book, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” (yes, I’m still reading it). The statement is, “Communication is the most important skill in life.” The second statement we’re going to talk about is directly related, “Words have a long shelf life.”

Almost immediately, anyone who hears the latter statement will nod in agreement and more than likely recall an example. Human nature being what it is, I would almost be willing to bet the house that the majority of females think of a negative comment. The males, on the other hand, who can’t remember what they had for lunch, will recall something positive and encouraging.
