Talking Points:  Knowing what you think about an issue and being clear about the outcomes you want are the talking points for any conversation or process.  Talking points, the ideas and issues you want to address and get clear about, keep you on track for success by creating the outcomes that work.  These talking points only take minutes to determine as you ask the questions regarding the meeting; review; person; prospect; goal you are looking to reduce to clear ideas that resonate.  Always start with what questions:  what is most important here; what do I want as an outcome; what will this outcome produce; what can I bring to the table to create immediate and effective results??  Never go into a meeting or discussion without determining the talking points that will serve the situation.
Knowing what is important – jot down what is most important to you and keep those thoughts and ideas with you
Well thought out talking points shift your thinking to highly creative supportive suggestions and resources
The feeling of being prepared to discuss and then execute what is needed builds confidence and results producing actions
Talking points help you stay on track and stay on topic – guiding the situation to high quality outcomes
Stress easily disappears when you are prepared and know the details that will contribute to the success of a situation; project; proposal; plan
Becoming a clarity producing resource builds trust and respect  and it only takes minutes to learn this process and use it
