Most people talk at 125-180 words per minute. But listeners can process up to 500 words a minute, making it easy for them to capture the gist of your message and daydream.

Don’t let them tune out. Compel others to listen to you by starting off with these attention-grabbers:

• I’ve got good news.

• You’re going to like what I’m about to say.

• You may want to sit down for this.

• My guess is you’ll find what I’m going to say surprising.

• When you asked me for this information, I never thought I’d find out so much.

• This is complicated, so here’s the short, sweet version.

• I’m going to summarize this for you in less than 20 words.
