Sigh. “I just wanted to let you know…” “I just wanted to say…”

STOP RIGHT THERE. When you use the word “just”, you are making yourself smaller in a conversation. You are trying to take up less space, trying to be less assertive, and handing the receiver of your “just”, your power. Say what you have to say with confidence. Don’t look for approval or acceptance from the individual you’re conversing with. Remember, bosses don’t justify what they have to say, and neither should you. BOSS UP, BADDIES.
