One of my mentors once told me, “No. Stop. You’re growing too fast and not slowing down for your audience. Teach one simple nugget at a time, and your audience will be better off. Stop letting your expertise be your biggest shortcoming.” Damn, he was right. He was completely right, and it was tough to accept. Unfortunately, this happens to everyone—even the people who teach communication. We get so immersed into our field that we forget the world outside. But we need to come back to reality. We need to eat our dog food. So remember to slow down; you may be going to fast for your audience.
