Imagine you have been given the task of performing a eulogy.
You do a perfect job, you never stutter, lose your way, curse or get emotional during your speech. Instead you deliver, the finest piece of oratory ever heard at a funeral.
Or perhaps, instead you are overcome with emotion and you do a terrible job, you lose your way, you break down, perhaps you even beat the coffin with your fists in grief, demanding to know why your friend had been take too soon.
Which speech do you think the funeral goers will connect with more strongly?
Raw and real beats perfection every time.
How often do we take the first approach in other forms of human communication, hoping to do it perfectly, in a manner that is devoid of all our humanity, and then we are left wondering why so few people connected with what it was we had to say.
