Know Your Audience
Understanding this difference is called knowing your audience, and it can be an incredibly helpful exercise when it comes to improved communication. Before you start talking to someone, examine what their relationship is to you. If they are family or friends, you can probably be freer and say what’s on your mind. However, if they are a co-worker or stranger, you may want to keep your personal opinions to yourself and stick to the facts.
It is also essential to understand the communication style of the person you are speaking too. If they do not enjoy talking, do not try to convert them. Respect this fact and always try to get straight to the point. If you are speaking to someone who is notoriously busy, it may be helpful to organize your thoughts before speaking to them. This will show you respect their time and improve your relationship with them.
Lastly, when it comes to voicing opinions, complaints, and concerns, it’s key to remember there is a time and place for everything. If you are in a team meeting with a lot to cover, your boss expects you to deliver your updates quickly to ensure everyone gets a turn. It’s advisable to wait until you are speaking in a private setting to voice these issues. When you do, remember to back everything up with facts and try and leave emotion out of it.

To Fail Greatly
Despite being seemingly cursed from becoming president, Clay didn’t shy away from politics. He was called the “Great Compromiser” because he played a significant role in three landmark compromises: the Missouri Compromise of 1820, the Tariff Compromise of 1833, and the Compromise of 1850.
After his first presidential defeat in 1824, he became Secretary of State (1825-1829) and was nominated to the Supreme Court (which he rejected). After losing the presidency in 1832 to Andrew Jackson, he authored the Compromise Tariff Act. Again in 1844, he was defeated by James K. Polk for the presidency and returned to the Senate.
He didn’t let his losses stop him; instead, they stoked his ambition. He kept vying and kept compromising, becoming an essential force in the 19th century.
Ironically, compromising was most likely his personal political tragedy. His compromising nature and the impression that his principles were negotiable made him unelectable.
Although it doesn’t seem like something he would say, Clay famously remarked, “I’d rather be right than be President.” People rarely remember the Presidents he lost to – Adams, Harrison, Tyler, Taylor, Fillmore (who?), or Pierce- and far more remember Clay. His losses seem more like successes. He failed greatly.
