We need to delete, erase, and otherwise eliminate the word “just.”
Don’t qualify your statement by using the word.
“I just think that…”
“She just does it.”
“I’m just an employee.”
“Just checking in.”
You may think it’s a harmless word, but what you don’t realize is that you make your statement ambiguous when you add “just” and can even on occasion undermine your own meaning by sounding too apologetic or unknowledgeable.
Be clear, confident, and assertive in your speech or else you won’t have an audience that actually listens.
