This one’s from my coach!
Take the extra 5 seconds (especially when you are tired during tech week!)to think about the information you want to convey so that it is clear and concise when you say it the first time. Then you don’t have to spend an extra 15 seconds repeating or re-explaining or rambling.
Also, no “ums” if you can help it (looking at myself…)
Tech week #2: go forth and communicate!
I use this quite a bit! I’m always exhausted during tech week and need to process what is being asked of me, and will usually use the explanation “I’m processing” or “I’m computing” when I hesitate to answer!
