For Great Relationships, You Must Say Everything That Matters (But Not Everything!)

When I say, “say everything that matters,” I don’t mean say everything that is in your head. Some of your thoughts aren’t worth repeating or communicating. Some things you just shouldn’t say.

What if we really said everything we were thinking? We’d have no friends and our families would disown us. Let’s be real.

If you are causal with your words, your words create casualties.

When you see someone going in the wrong direction, being able to assertively and respectfully approach them and say what everyone else is thinking is the hallmark of a great leader.

Simple truth! It's easy to speak too soon and not evaluate the quality or impact of the words you're so quick to say (or not say!)
