The irony of learning how to write many words for an issue often leads one to become ‘wordy’ in real life situations. However, some working conditions require succinct statements. It is well to remember one big company that posted for job vacancies and required applicants to submit a well-written resume in addition to an on the spot interview by the owner. In consistence, the applicants prepared well for an oratorical piece that may be delivered in case one of the common interview questions arises. The interview day came, and with the applicants in full attention, the owner projected on a large screen a financial statement and a balance sheet. Then the owner said, in just a ‘single word’ succinctly portray what you have just seen on the screen, and in a single word give a solution to the issue. Those who can are hired.
