How To Communicate Like a Mixed Martial Arts Fighter

 

“Silence is a source of great strength.” Lao Tzu

The two fighters stand toe to toe at the center of the octagon. Neither blinks as they stare each other down. The fight hasn’t even started, and one fighter is positioning himself for success without saying a word.

The guy in the black trunks and red and blue dragon tattoo across the right side of his chest is swaying back and forth with his arms fully extended down on each side of his body. His fists are tightly clenched. He’s sending a message without saying a word.

The fighter in the bright green shorts with bleach blond hair is standing inches away and perfectly still. There’s no movement or sound. His eyes are closed, and he looks like he’s meditating. He’s also communicating a powerful message in his own silent way.

As the fighters reach out and tap knuckles, they each share a glance at the other. The guy in the black pumps his fist in the air as he turns and walks back to his corner.

The other fighter in green smiles and blows his opponent a sarcastic kiss before returning to his side of the octagon.

 

Outside the Octagon

Good trial lawyers know that communication in the courtroom is much more than giving an opening statement, asking a witness questions, or making a persuasive closing argument. How we walk, dress, and behave influences our jury. Our body language often serves as an exclamation point to what was just said. Our silence can go a long way to building trust and rapport.

How you come across during a podcast, video, or even through the actions of your avatar in the metaverse matters. Your silence and body language may be more important than anything you say.

Sometimes, a single verbal punch is all it takes to make your point and close a deal. But often, the perception others have about you, and the things that are never said make the most significant difference.

Practice silence. Pay attention to your body language. Give weight to the quotes from Peter Drucker and Lao Tzu.

Lawyers- Please Do These 7 Things in 2023

 

To all my friends who are ⚖️ lawyers. Moving forward in 2023, please do the following:

 

Build 3 communities

👉 The first community is with your team from inside your firm.

👉 The second community is with your past and existing clients.

👉 The third community is with those individuals in your sphere of influence other than the above.

 

Focus on:

✅ Creating exemplary client experiences. Everything you do should have this goal in mind (it’s easy). [related book- “Fanocracy: Turning Fans into Customers and Customers into Fans” by David Meerman Scott and Reiko Scott]

✅ Getting familiar with the legal issues relating to web3 (blockchain, smart contracts, NFTs, DAO, DeFi, Dapps, cryptocurrency). [related post- “What to Watch in Web3” via Vayner3]

✅ Creating a welcome mat in the metaverse. Let clients meet in your private or public virtual office or conference room. [related resource- Spatial the primary metaverse I’m using right now]

✅ Creating and building out your web3 digital brand. It will be the primary way people think about and connect with you. [related post- Digital Identity: Why It Matters in Web3]

 

Please stay in touch and make today your masterpiece!

THE ERA OF DECENTRALIZATION IS COMING via Packy McCormick

 

In his “Not Boring” newsletter, Packy shared a detailed analysis of why decentralization is coming.

__________

But first, what is decentralization?

As it applies to web3, it’s the process by which the activities of an individual or organization, including the foundational technology supporting these activities, are distributed away from a central authoritative entity or group.

__________

Because Packy shared one of the best overviews about decentralization that I’ve come across, I want to make sure this issue of his newsletter is on your radar. Packy discusses:

✅ Sine wave oscillation between centralization and decentralization.

✅ The concept of predetermined reactions to different technological conditions.

✅ Beaumont’s three phases of the change process.

✅ The 13.8 billion year process of universal decentralization and why it matters.

✅ Graeber and Wengrow.

✅ Ben Thompson’s Aggregation Theory.

✅ Time, technology, and the cycle of birth resulting in change.

Read this decisive issue here.
