Give thy thoughts no tongue,
Nor any unproportioned thought his act
Hamlet Act 1:3 59-60
What does this teach us today?:
Don’t shout immediately out to everybody everything you think about everything,
This applies to blogging as well! And Tweeting!
Often at an important meeting, it is wise to let others speak first and then to say what you think.
Don’t act too quickly on what you think. Think things through. You may need to calm down.
In the days before Email, if you wrote a letter in anger 😣, it was wise to put it in the draw of your desk for the night. The next day, when you had calmed down and read it, you might have decided not to send it.
The danger today is that it is so easy to bang off an angry Email immediately. Don’t do this. Calm down.
Don’t forget Gmail has a way of stopping a Gmail going out after you click “send”. But, you must stop it quickly. Find out how to do it. It is easy. 😊
