Tearing Them Down...

Uncategorized May 10, 2022

ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT how to tear down your opponent's argument?

Stop. You'll never change minds with that. Instead, try this.

Are you open to having your mind changed? Probably not. With that realization, you've now met your opponent in a practical way.

To persuade someone else, start by asking what it would take to persuade you to their side. You don't respond to bullying or character assassination, do you? Neither does anyone else.

Ask yourself what would open your mind to considering a new point of view, or at least respecting it.

If you can't do that, give up. For real. Persuasion is achieved by human connection, not just reason, and never hostility.

Effective writing isn't just about other people's attitude. It's mostly about yours.
