This is a great exercise.

I too have too many thoughts and too much information to share. I have to
avoid talking first, loudest, and longest. I go nuts waiting for a group to
"catch up."

In a meeting once I was trying to get people to do something -- can' t
remember what -- but it was a no-brainer to which no one responded. I asked
why and was told, "you talked too long." Simple as that.
