Think before you say

A follow up to my post the other day titled “Say what you think“.

I also don’t mean that we should blurt out everything that we think immediately. We should thoughtfully construct our point of view before we say anything.

I’ve found myself in many conversations where I immediately reply to someone and then regret what I’ve said.

And a lot of the time it’s because I don’t want to sit in that awkward silence between participants of a conversation. Getting comfortable with this silence results in better, more effective, conversations.
