A self-help book sums this up as its title. 30 seconds only is all you have to get your message across. If you do not catch his attention within this brief time frame, you lost him. Period.

The message is simple, if you want to communicate with your listener, string your words or sentences in the most powerful, simple and direct yet attention catching way, all in thirty seconds. so that once his attention is grabbed, you can proceed to continue from there.
