Too Long; Didn’t Read

“Brevity is the soul of wit.” – William Shakespeare

                                                                         -Brad Bain


My buddy shared this proverb with me one time indicating that coherent, intelligent thoughts are best articulated with as few words as possible.  The quickest way to lose my attention is for there to be a (…see more) link at the end of a full page of text. While some ideas take a little longer to flesh out than others, it will always be a priority of mine to be as brief as possible when sharing them.  For those who just can’t be bothered, I’m including a TL;DR (Too Long; Didn’t Read) statement at the end of each of my entries – Tweet-sized articles, if you will!

Personal application:  If you notice people drifting off every time you speak to them, it might behoove you to start beginning your conversations with TL;DL statements. Otherwise, you run the risk of “Oh, I’m sorry… Can’t respond. Too long, didn’t listen.”

TL;DR:  My entries will be brief.
