It’s about time! IDSA Lyme hearing speech limits
It's about going from the abstract to the concrete. Getting out the stop watch and thinking about just how long is 15 minutes. It's enough time to eat lunch or do an errand. But how long is 15 minutes in words? I haven't had to give it much thought until recently. It turns out 15 minutes translates into a number of words. In speeches the pace is generally between 120 and 160 words per minutes. So, if you do a scripted speech for 15 minutes, you have between 1,800 and 2,400 words. Now, if I could only master the art of speed read and teach the panel to speed listen, we'd be off to the races!
