Speaking with Purpose

Most of us live in a speed trap. We stay in our minds, thinking about all we have to get done by the end of the day. As a result, we’ve become un-original in what we say.

What gives our words power is to pause. Think about what you want to say. Ask a question.

Before you make a sweeping and thoughtless generalization, stop. Think about it. And speak with purpose.
