FIGHT THE URGE TO FILL THE VOID

In media interviews, public presentations and even in casual conversations, when you’re done answering a question, stop talking. Silence can be awkward and our natural reaction is to fill the void. However, if you keep talking you’re guaranteed to say more than you want and your message may become lost. So, next time you’re faced with silence; smile, ask if there are any other questions and resist the urge to keep talking.
