Be direct

Helen Thomas, the first woman assigned to the White House to cover a president, died on July 20, 2013.

She was a success because “she asked every question the only way she knew how—directly,” says Robert Gibbs, who served as President Obama’s press secretary from 2009 to 2011. Gibbs wrote Thomas’ obituary for the August 5, 2013, issue of Time magazine.

I am going to remember that lesson from Helen Thomas. I am going to remember to be more direct, straightforward, to the point.
