#122 – If you have a request for someone, don’t just ask. Give a reason and use the word because. From: Yes, 50 Scientifically Proven Ways to be Persuasive by Robert B Cialdini

 Using the word “because” increases the persuasiveness of your request.   Studies have shown that using ”because” increases the likelihood that someone will say yes to your request by fifty percent.   As in, Would you please move this furniture because the rain will ruin it otherwise.

 Do take care on this very hot day,

About sand1

When I was young, I made a lot of bad choices. The only way I knew to dig myself and my family out was to go to the library, always hoping that the next book I read would change my life and thankfully, often many of them did. Out of gratitude for the happy life I have now, I decided to share what I have learned, and continue to learn. I hope that Tuesday Tips helps you as much as they have helped and continue to help me.
