Before You Speak (or tweet)

A very old adage prescribes that before you speak something consider whether it passes the following: Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? These have also been called the three gates or three sieves. I offer my own three questions as an alternative or at least an addition to those above…

Does it assume your listener feels and believes the same way you do?

Can you allow someone to disagree with you without turning them into a monster?

Will it piss people off simply for the sake of pissing people off?

I hope you find these questions and the accompanying video of value. Peace, Ned
