Why Am I Talking?

We like to talk. It makes us feel in control. We get heard, we direct the conversation.

The problem is, it doesn’t always get us where we need to go.

Talking delivers information. Listening determines what information to deliver. Thinking determines when to deliver it.

Talking prevents listening and thinking.

It’s easy to talk, it feels good. But, it rarely get’s us to where we want to go.

If you have something to say. If it’s important, if it follows good listening, if it follows good thinking, then say it.

If not W.A.I.T. and ask yourself . . . Why Am I Talking?
