Show Notes

To be persuasive, you should avoid certain words and phrases. One of them is the phrase "it's interesting to note that..." The reason this phrase hinders your persuasion is that it forces a conclusion onto the reader. Your readers are capable of making their conclusions, and if they come to the same conclusions as you do, they will be persuaded. But if they feel you are pushing your conclusions onto them, they will not hear you out.
