- Does it need to be said?
- Do I need to say it?
- Does it need to be said now or can it wait?
These are good questions that will keep me from putting my foot in my mouth. It reminded me to THINK before I speak.
In any situation, whatever I say should fit one or more of these criteria:
T = Thoughtful
H = Honest or Helpful
I = Inspiring
N = Necessary
K = Kind
How many hurt feeling and arguments can we all avoid when THINK before we speak? Would we choose our words differently?
