Enhance or Diminish? Your Choice

We all get frustrated from time to time with people we love or work with or do business with.  And unfortunately, we’ve all also said or done things in response to their actions that we later regretted.  And THEN we had to spend valuable time cleaning up our mess.

I have a question that you can ask yourself BEFORE you allow your knee-jerk response to kick in.  Simply stop.  Take a breath and ask yourself, “Is what I’m about to do or say going to enhance this relationship or diminish it?

And if the answer is “diminish it”, then find another way to say what you have to say.
