The power of quietness

This entry was posted on Wednesday, August 15th, 2012 at 11:15 AM

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my need for silence when I write.  It followed a frustrating and unproductive morning of being driven bonkers by the banging, drilling and sawing a couple of doors away.

Robert Stubbings  a former advisor manager with Business Link South East, has just sent me a link to a post that gives a slightly different angle on the relationship of quietness to productivity.

It’s by Roberta Matuson, CEO, Human Resource Solutions based in the USA and is titled ‘The link between quietness and productivity

Roberta points out that it’s often the quiet people who are the most productive and she gives some great examples of why she believes that to be so.

While it’s not exactly related to my post it does show how powerful a force quietness can be. Definitely food for thought and I hope you enjoy reading it.

Thanks to Robert for sending it to me and to for Roberta of course for agreeing to let me use it.

Hello. I'm Elaine, I'm a copywriter and this is my blog.

It's mostly about words and writing - things that inspire me, entertain me, and make me smile. Sometimes it's about things that horrify me so much I want to scream and shout!

I hope you enjoy it and find it useful. And speaking of useful - scroll down and take a look at the Oxford Dictionaries tool.
