What Needs Saying

The Point

Thoughts and words operate by the same rules. Just because we have a brain fart doesn’t mean our idea isn’t worthless. Many ideas are worthless, just like words. Vet. Filter. Bounce. Discuss. Ideas need to go through other people before you can trust them, even when they are your own. Don’t trust just anyone’s feedback. Their ideas might not be trustworthy either. Trust people’s feedback the same as you trust the results in their lives—because their words are only as credible as the fruit of their ideas, as with yours.

Also, sleep on your own words before sharing them.
