speaking up more in meetings

2 main tricks that have helped me:

  • practice. just keep trying. make notice of when you don't speak up but could have. given enough time you'll start speaking up
  • know what you say doesn't need to be perfect. imo a large amount of in-person communication is BS or not important LOL. but I've decided to play the game and spew BS sometimes. it looks better than not talking at all, and eventually i'll spew more insight than BS over time. or start a company where i outlaw meetings
