This is one of my favorite poems. I am big on the intentional utilization of words and, too frequently, people toss in fillers and speak without confidence because they lack confidence. Know what you’re saying and know what you’re talking about. Aspire for eloquence and not mediocrity. You won’t always hit the mark but at least you’re trying.
Hint: The intentional utilization of words and building a solid vocabulary starts with reading.
Make professional development a priority.
