You're A Real Estate Broker In Sales Right? Talk Much?

   Maine fall leafOver a 50 years of "speaking", the average person would fill 1200 books.   Or each day, the typical person utters enough to crank out speech to fill twenty single spaced type written pages.  Not sure if this figures in talking in your sleep or not but over the hours you are awake, you could fill two books of 300 pages a month.  Or 24 books each year.  Thanks to phones, voicemail, shooting the breeze with folks you meet and family..heck, even your therapist who is paid to listen...you my friend are very verbal.  That's a lotta words...do you really think about the ones you chose..with family, your co workers, your customers..or just crank out volume shaped slightly by reaction of the one on the other end?  Do you stop and think about what the other person just said ? Or have a train of thought kicked into gear and PRESTO...you are three cups of coffee turned on speech wise?  We conserve resoures, we look for ways to reduce and keep it simple..but what about our speech ?  If we are in sales, we like and know how to talk.  Maybe it is attention getting, maybe it is decided to inform and be helpful....maybe you just put into the speech trail everything you are thinking.  All of us could work on our listening skills in this business and there is a reason God gave us two ears and one mouth.  How are your listening skills since we just proved the average cat is pretty darn verbal?  Or have you studied customers who have oral diarrhea that tend to waste your time or make your job harder trying to get your word and point in edge wise?

Interesting stats.  I can't help but wonder who in the world figured out the numbers for them.  That would take a lot of work following someone around, writing down everthing they say and then typing it out to see how many pages it fills!

Someone with a plastic pocket protector...hush puppies, button sweater, pants up to under armpits, black glasses from early 60's broken with white surgical tape over the nose bridge...with a clip board and pencil observing a thousand people over a ten year period funded by the US government thru the Peace Corp grant for a senator's nephew is probably where the info/stats came from.
