Eliminate unnecessary words
Being concise doesn't mean being simplistic. It's about saying something clearly and effectively without being 'wordy'. There are some simple ways to make your writing concise.
There is no need to say the same thing twice. If you use unnecessary words or redundancies, eg cooperate together, basic essentials, true facts, you will be making your sentences wordy because both words mean the same thing.
Whenever possible reduce the number of words you use.
