Communication Tip #63

“It will not take a minute for you to read this.” So, how long will it take?

Add one word and the sentence gets even more confusing: “It will not take but a minute…”

For succinctness and clarity, use positive construction and active voice (subject / verb / object) whenever possible.

Example. “You will read this in less than a minute.” (and love it, I’m sure!)
