Every type of communication is currently undergoing rapid change.
They're all changing. Fast.
To be fair, communication is always changing, but the spread of the internet is transforming engagement faster than most are able to adjust.
Finding out if you are one of those experiencing fatigue from these radical shifts is easy. Just ask yourself these 5 questions:
- Are you more stressed than you were 5 years ago?
- Do you often wait after seeing posts/messages to weigh or calculate your response?
- Do you look at your phone in social situations?
- Are you typically familiar with what's trending?
- Do you know social media stresses you, but need it for personal or professional reasons that make it essential to your success?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, the shifts in modern communication are almost certainly affecting your daily stress levels.
SURVIVING AND SUCCEEDING
Communication is key to both our survival and success. It’s a skill we learn right along with walking. It's that important.
Humans are highly adapted to process things in the analog world, but the digital world is a new frontier. Smartphones and the internet magnify what we think we need to process in any given day to thrive in our surroundings, turning us into the metaphor of the already full cup constantly overflowing.
There’s just too much to process these days and, with pleasantries largely left in the 20th Century, most of the new information coming at you ready to punish you for not already knowing it.
8 MAJOR CONVERSATIONAL TONES
But what if I told you there was a system to decode the current flood of information you process daily?
Would you be interested in improving personal, professional, and virtual interactions?
It’s as easy as learning an 8-tone scale—C Major, in this case.
If you don’t know a C Major scale on the piano, have someone show you. It’s as simple as 8 notes played in a row. You start with middle C and climb up C-D-E-F-G-A-B-and end on C again. No flats, you just stick to the white keys.
That is a C Major scale. There are more scales than that, of course, but a lot of music is contained in those 8 major tones.
Our conversations are no different.
There's a lot you can do by learning 8 current notes and defining what keys work for you and which keys you'll leave it to others to play to a different audience.
All you need is a sense of pitch while knowing which tone is which, and you’re on your way to tuning all of your personal interactions into songs you can sing along to.
The 8 Major Conversational Tones system works on everything:
- Social media posts
- Cover letters
- Love letters
- Professional correspondence
- Anything with a message
You can use it to code or decode anywhere you want to make a distinct impression.
