"Thinking of ways to encourage others..."
Place every piece of criticism
between two slabs of praise.
No idea where this one originally came from but I know it works... if applied.
At least it works on me when Sandy has used it on me. Of course she has great difficulty finding anything in me to criticize. 😇
Actually, criticism is so wasted and overused. Whether it's Roast Preacher for Sunday lunch or Stupid Politicians for workday diner, we all waste a lot of criticism on issues we will never impact. Child rearing, teaching, supervising, relating to our spouse, now there are some areas our positive criticism could impact. Heavens to Betsey, we might even find an area in ourselves that is less than perfect. Nah...
Till next time,
