Interrupt, procrastinate and bring people to tears. And do not forget to eat with your left hand, calls the business consultant Rochit Bhargava. This will help to think faster, act more efficiently and become a person with whom everyone wants to communicate and cooperate. How it works?

1.Crust more

Result: We keep up with

To keep up with time usually implies to follow the schedule in advance in advance. You can come to the time for an interview or to meet with lunch. Come to where I promised to be, is a sign of decency. But to have time on time – it means to choose the right moment for action. You need to feel the moment, and do not blindly observe the schedule. People who have mastered such an art appear exactly at the moment when they are needed, offer unexpected solutions and know how to grab a good opportunity, no matter how swiftly it passes by.

They often tell us that you need to be punctual, but there is no lesson in which you would be told how to first procrastinate until the last minute, and then suddenly give out something when it arises in this. Launching a new product, the decision to take a new employee and even get acquainted with the right people – the success of these events depends on what time you will choose for them. And there is hardly a schedule in which you could poke a finger and say that now the perfect moment has come to crank up this matter.


Strategically wait until the last minute. Do not rush to complete the task as soon as possible, but wait for the moment when you can do it with optimal efficiency. It will be easier for you to catch this moment if you stay in the present tense and do not allow social networks and gadgets to distract yourself.

Learn not in advance, but in a timely manner. Education does not have to be official – like training at a university. You get it every time you master a new skill.

There is no need to understand the density of paper and different types of lamination until you are going to establish your publishing house.

2.Interrupt more often

Result: We become an active listener

It is easy to substantiate the success of the interviewer with the fact that he knows how to listen well. Most of the many years old were pushed how important this skill. We also learned preschoolers that a person has two ears and only one mouth. You can recall a dozen other statements about the benefits of listening. Problem: As a rule, they do not explain to us what the ability to listen well is well. Usually we are simply taught to listen in silence … And this implies that we must close our mouths and try to focus on the speaker.

What if listening (or silent listening) does not help a conversation or interview so much? Maybe to become a good listener, you need to learn how to strategically interrupt the interlocutor? Talk about some of his statements, wedge into a conversation with some own story. Interrupting the monologue, you create a rhythm that contributes to the development and deepening of the dialogue. The ability to interrupt correctly can make you a more pleasant person in communication. It turns you from a passive listener into an active.


Nod less often, ask specific questions more often. Frequent nods encourage the interlocutor to start retelling the history of vacation. Ask if there was a moment on the trip that changed his idea of the world, or whether he had happened to be in a place where he would like to stop time. Such questions can serve as a tool for strategic interruption, thanks to which the conversation will turn out to be more interesting and deeper.

3.Do not eat cauliflower

Result: We have our own point of view

I hate cauliflower, its smell, view and texture. There was a time when I hid hostility towards her. Smiled politely and tried to quietly bypass. Sometimes I even had to put it on my plate to please her of persistent owners. But I decided that I would not pretend. It is useful to hide your opinion in the field of jurisprudence, where personal opinion can and will be used against you

in court. In business and ordinary life, the availability of your own opinion is commendable and desirable. The presence of opinions distinguishes those who contribute to the common cause, from those who fulfill other people’s orders. But you must be able to justify beliefs, even if it is some kind of trifle like dislike for cabbage. It is great to have your point of view if it is not based on ignorance.
