When something is simple or easy to explain, we say it's "cut and dried." For this expression, we are once again indebted to the lumber trade.

Wood, among lumbermen, is not lumber until it has gone through two processes.  First it is "cut" after cutting it is "dried." Only then is it lumber, ready for sale and use.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking - Quick Tips

  1. Keep it short and sweet.
  2. Slow down: Don’t talk too fast.
  3. Look up! – It it’s too scary to look at the audience in the front row, look at the people in the back of the room.
  4. Smile : Look confident, even if you don’t feel confident.
  5. Pretend: Find a friendly face in the audience and pretend you’re only talking to that person.
  6. Practice: Join a debating team, dare yourself. To speak up in class, give a speech in front of a mirror. The more opportunities you have speak in public the easier it gets.
  7. Biggest asset: Self-confidence. Actas though you have a right to be there-because you do.
