This clip of Seinfeld is one of my Favorites. It’s appropriately called, “THE LIP READER.”
It’s Classic Seinfeld.
It’s Classic Jerry.
It’s Classic George.
It’s Classic US!
Did you hear what I didn’t say?
Did you SEE what You Thought my Lips Said?
Communication comes in so many forms and is misinterpreted in just as many.

Tell us: We retain 10% of what we Read
20% of what we Hear
30% of what we See
50% of what we Hear and See
70% of what we Say
90% of what we Say and DO.
You may bet a Country of Farms on this one and WIN:

. . .that when you THINK you Know what’s being Communicated, you are at the highest RISK level for absolutely knowing NOTHING!
…No matter who great of a Communicator and Listener, A See’er a Hear’er you think you may be–
YOU ARE NOT!
If we hired are own personal Lip Reader what would you want that Lip Reader to peruse?
What would you want your own personal Lip Reader to ascertain information-wise for you?
What would you want your Lip Reader to part on your behalf?
We just aren’t all that good with the Speaking,
with the Hearing,
with the Signing,
with the Interpreting.
Mostly. . .we aren’t good at admitting it. . .
Mostly. . .we ARE fantastic at Faking it.
We may fail horribly of Communicating–all aspects–the saying, the hearing, the understanding, the interpreting.
Let us FAIL NOT evermore now…
of at least Attempting!
