    Simple, yet Profound.

    Bob Nicoll is a Wordsmith, Speaker and Author. His Remember the Ice program effectively teaches us how to Re-Frame our messages when they are cluttered with “(K)notty Words”. “Give him 93 seconds… and YOU WILL CHANGE the way you think about WORD CHOICE for the Rest of your Life!!” You can see the story behind Remember the Ice by clicking here.

    “It’s much easier to work with what you are aware of, than what you have overlooked.”
    ~~~Bob Nicoll, Creator of Remember the Ice

    Seems pretty obvious. Agreed?

    Well, let’s engage in one of the best exercises available to enhance your awareness of “(K)notty Words”.

    Three simple steps:

    1. Get a piece of paper and a writing implement
    2. List the 28 “(K)notty Words” on the left side, one per line.
    3. Watch your favorite news broadcast, i.e. CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc., and keep track of what you see or hear when one of the rascally “(K)notty Words” pop up. Make a tick mark.

    You will be amazed at the number that will appear. Be sure to watch and listen to the advertisements, because they are like a breeding ground.

    For advanced students of Remember the Ice, make note of some outrageous examples, then re-frame them as quickly as possible. See if you can come up with three new versions using BETTER Word Choice.

    Until next time, keep your focus on what you want to have happen.

    Empowering Regards,
