Do you say this?

Hello friends!

A few weeks ago, I noticed something. I noticed that I use the word “just” quite a bit, especially in work communications.

I’m just checking on that deadline ...
I’m just wondering if you got my email ...
I’m just hoping we can set up a phone call …

Do you do this? Why do we feel the need to insert an apologetic “just” into everything we say?

I realized that I wasn't representing myself or my work very well with that little word. I made a conscious decision to stop, and in the weeks since, my eyes have been opened.

Now I’m checking on deadlines, I’m wondering if you got my email, and I’m hoping we can set up a call. No “just” about it. It’s not rude, but it’s not apologetic. A small change that makes a big difference, at least in my own mindset.

How about you? Have you ever made a small change in your communication that made a big difference? I look forward to hearing all about it!

God bless your week,
