Succinct

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 7:06 am

C420487 mI woke up with the word, “Succinct” on my mind.

I checked a few dictionaries and here is a brief explanation. Succinct: Briefly and clearly expressed.

This isn’t about writing or speaking more clearly because sometimes I’m even confused about what I write or say. It’s more about getting to the essence of something – a cutting through process.

When I pay attention, I have the ability to see through the window dressing and clearly observe the succinct essence of what’s being offered. In the past, I’ve always patted myself on the back for having some kind of special talent, until I discovered that we all have it.

Famed trial lawyer, Gerry Spence calls this ability a BS detector; I believe it’s deeper than that.

I believe we all have the ability to see another’s essence clearly and succinctly by doing two things.

1. Know it is there before looking.

2. Pay attention when we look.

If you know “Gold is in them thar hills,” you’re more likely to find it. And secondly, if you pay attention, you’ll not be fooled by “Fool’s Gold.”

Fool’s Gold, in this context, is the surface structure we all present. If you get caught up in going tit-for-tat in that arena, it’ll take a long time to find the succinct core.

Paying attention goes past noticing; it has deeper roots. Paying attention is mainly feeling.

Please don’t confuse feeling with how you feel about another. That’s just surface emotion. Feeling is extracting yourself from your head and all it’s prejudices, and getting in touch with your body and what it’s communicating.

The body is quick and dependable when it comes to getting to the core. You just have to pay attention to the signals it’s sending you, rather than give that attention to the conditioned argument your mind is presenting.

I’ve worked with thousands and thousands of clients over the years and I don’t like everyone I work with. If I let that prejudice get in the way, I’m more likely to be of less assistance.

My judgement of them is not important and it gets in the way of seeing through, especially if I label that judgment as “True.” When a judgement goes on too long (meaning past a few seconds), it prevents me from getting out of my head and into my body.

If you haven’t already begun, start paying attention to your body. It’s the quickest way through to a connection between me and you.

A succinct way to hook up with another is to go past what they say by paying attention to your body. It clears all the surface distractions out of the way, so you can quickly find their core essence on display.

All the best,

John
