The thicker the explanation the less absorbent the message.

If that explanation you're hearing just don't make no sense and the explanations that follow make even less sense...methinks the person doth communicate too much.

Of course, take this much more figuratively than literally.

Sure, change is tough.

But you gotta look on the bright side: if you don't like that last suggestion - when the urge to change gets too annoying, you can always watch a TV rerun.

Now, do you see the benefit in the power of positive thinking?

If you think communication is easy and yours is very successful, you're dreaming.

It's tough to enjoy the humour at your office when it all happens behind your back.

The missed-joys of bad-boss oblivion, when ignorance creates behind-the-back bliss. 

What you don't know can be damned funny. 

What you don't know won't hurt you...well, at least not directly.

Criticism: Constructive Criticism is an Oxymoron | Humour | Thought Tweets

Once upon a time there were no walls. People must have beat their heads against something else.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

When you are beating your head against a wall the first thing to do is recognize, your head doesn't fare well when you pit it against a wall.

Heads don't fare well when you beat it against walls.

If you saw others beating their heads against walls, would you join them?

Walls versus Heads...the smart money is on Walls.

...all of this in support of changing for the better.
