How I Respect Your Time. Tip #2. Break it up into chunks

Here’s what I find works for me. If I am not sure how you may react to something I have to say, a question I need to ask or an issue I need you to process, then the best way to take this forward is to test the waters as I go.

This involves breaking the information I want to pass you into a few chunks. In that way, I don’t overwhelm or inundate. If there’s silence, it could be either it’s not been read, understood or there’s no interest. I can test further. At the very least, I’ve not wasted my time working on the thing fully. If I break it up into chunks, it allows me to build a level of interest and momentum.

More importantly, it allows me the chance to pace myself to the person receiving the information and adjusting how things should be positioned based on the feedback I receive.
