Exactly what to think before we speak?

DSC_1294

It was a month ago when I was just few words away from abusing my boss. He was yelling at me for something I didn’t do or for that matter it was not really an issue. It’s a common habit of bosses; they ask questions and don’t want answers. However, I don’t know how but I controlled myself and didn’t say a word to him. Later, unexpectedly he was sorry.

At times it is really hard for us to hold when something/someone hurts our ego. They say’ think before you speak’. I always wanted an answer like exactly what to think. We are angry, paying attention to a conversation which is probably overstuffed with non-social words, what can we possibly think that will hold us back. If this is an unsolved mystery to you too, then here is the solution. Ask yourself-

  • Does this need to be said?

  • Does this need to be said by ME?

  • Does this need to be said by me right NOW?

It is not possible to get frequent answers for all three questions but even if you get the answer for one, may be you would not be regretting later.
