Choose Your Words Wisely

It is rewarding to speak the right word at the right time when you are at work. Speaking the right word at the right time gives the impression that you are indeed working hard and committed to get your work done.

However, there are a few words that you really need to avoid especially when you are talking to your boss. At least try not to speak these words too often in the office. You might develop the habit to speak these words all the time.

Here is the list of words you should avoid:

  1. Try
  2. Whatever
  3. I don’t know
  4. Maybe
  5. If
  6. I will get back to you
  7. But
  8. I guess
  9. I think so
  10. I hope so

Why you need to avoid using these words?

These are very weak words. These words imply that you are not committed to your work, which is very serious because if you are not committed to your work, then you are not putting 100% of your effort into getting your work done. At least this is the impression you are giving to your boss.

So think before you speak.
