Three Questions

A short video from Inc.com that I viewed last weekend is really sticking with me.

Basically it describes a technique – attributed to comedian Craig Ferguson – that is useful when conversations become heated.

Before saying anything in an emotional moment, ask yourself three questions:

  1. Does this need to be said?
  2. Does this need to be said by me?
  3. Does this need to be said by me now?

Wow. Effective.
