Unless we make a deliberate effort to escape, we are now almost constantly bombarded with information every minute of our waking hours.
Time was when the fastest way to get a message to someone was by the “penny post” and the most up-to-date news we could receive was delivered in the morning newspaper.
Now, even when we are on the move, we can continue to broadcast and receive global information using our mobile phones.
The number of information channels targeting us continues to grow. Six years ago, few of us had heard of Twitter. Now, even if we don’t use them, we hear of Twitter and other social media c onstantly.
In an environment like this – cluttered with more messages and information than one brain can possibly assimilate – effective communication becomes ever more critical to business success.
But getting your message through this clutter is essential if you are to succeed in your quest to launch a new career.
Who, in these circumstances, would want to make communication more difficult? But, strangely, that’s exactly what so many people and organisations do.
They feel the need to pepper their language with buzzwords and jargon that can end up making the language impenetrable to those outside their own niche. Maybe that is the intention.
Some will argue that you need jargon and buzz-words to explain technical points to your peers. I would agree, up to a point.
Over the past 30 years I have worked on some pretty technical oil industry articles and papers.
Each time I have sat down to write them, I have set out with the expectation of producing two versions. The first version, without jargon, would be aimed at business desks and news media. The second version would have the jargon added in for oil industry publications.
Almost every time, when I completed the first version, I realised it was good for both audiences! No matter how I looked at the stories, I could see no reason to add in jargon.
Embellishing your prose by adding jargon and buzz words may make you feel that your communication is more substantial.
The reality is that – in a world where everyone is clamouring for our attention – you are much more likely to get your point across if you keep your language simple and straightforward.
