Don’t read this blog!
[1 minute blog]
This week, a super-simple 1-minute persuasion technique that works every time.
If I say: ‘Don’t think about a pink car’, what do you instantly think about? The way the brain works, we have to process what a pink car looks like before we can work out not to think about it. So - you think about a pink car, of course.
This week - when you really really need to persuade someone of something.
- Tell them what not to do.
Here's some 'real-world' examples.
- 'Please don't sign the petition until you've heard all sides of the argument'
- 'I don't want you to consider buying this just yet'
- 'Don't read this blog!'
That's it. Have a great week and please don't use this technique over the next few days until you've found a way to make it work for you.
