According to Greg M. Epstein, ‘do unto others’ … is a concept that essentially no religion misses entirely.
Greg is a Humanist Chaplain at Harvard University and his point not only applies to religion, but public speaking too.
Imagine you’re in the audience and there are three speakers on stage. When one stands up to speak, the other two are constantly glancing around or whispering to each other, not listening to what he has to say.
If the other speakers can’t be bothered to listen to the current speaker, why should we? In fact, why should we listen to what they have to say either?
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, show interest, attentiveness and positivity towards the presentations of others is the golden rule, in life and as a speaker.
