Phrases That Work (And One That Doesn't)

  • 'Imagine' is still the most powerful word in the English language.
  • 'No excuses.' No phrase better conveys accountability, responsibility and transparency.
  • 'I get it.' Short, sweet and effective.
  • 'If you remember only one thing...' is the surest way to guarantee that people will remember the one point that matters most to you.
  • 'Uncompromising Integrity.' Of all the truthiness words, none is as powerful as 'integrity,' but in today's cynical environment, don't expect it to take you very far.
