Use Delaying Tactics When You Don't Have a Ready Answer

March 17, 2014 • written by

I don’t always have an answer ready so whenever I don’t and I need time to think of an answer I use delaying tactics.  This way I don’t give my conversation an awkward silence.

To learn how to do this.

Use delaying words like: I’m sorry can you repeat that? What do you mean by “reflect question” ? That’s a good question. So you are asking about “rephrase question”? Just to make sure I got that correctly…” rephrase question “ I’m not really sure but… At the top of my head… I’m thinking.. What’s the word for that? How do you put it? Let me think for a moment. Smile. 

Use your common sense and don’t overuse a tactic. I hope you find these useful.

Successful people are willing to experience temporary discomfort and do difficult activities that unsuccessful people are NOT willing to do so that they are able to build the life and enjoy benefits that unsuccessfull people will never have.

I am always praying for your success.
