Words of wisdom

Mike couldn't remember the source, but I needed to take this down one way or another:

  1. tell em what you're going to tell em
  2. tell em
  3. then tell em what you told em

However, now that I think of it, I do this, all the time, and people hate it. Can't blame 'em I guess. ;)



1. Introduction
2. Main Body/Arguments
3. Conclusion

That old axiom originates in the newsroom.
It is an old reporters trick on how to write a good story.


yeah, i hear that at toastmasters every week. if they hate it, maybe you need to hide that you're doing it a bit more? :)
