Raceology - Science of Auto Racing

Winning Communication

My voicemail message says "...please leave a detailed message." What do people usually leave? "Hey, this is so and so, call me back." This drives me insane. Why? Well, let's look at what happens if I call them back and they're not there. What do I do? I say "call me back." Then the cycle starts all over again. If people would just leave a detailed message I could answer them when I return the call.

If you truly want to see how ridiculous this is, think about sending someone an email that said "Hey, this is so and so, email me back."

What does this have to do with racing? Cars don't build themselves. The world rewards action, not talk. So, let's make the talk as efficient as possible and get on to the action.
