Michael Hyatt, grand poobah of Christian publishing giant Thomas Nelson, has a must-read article for all bloggers about thinking twice before you blog or email when you’re angry. I think it applies to a lot of misguided communication in our day. Although it’s easier to hide behind a screen or keyboard and fire verbal missiles, it’s not kind nor healthy for relationships.In brief, Hyatt’s points are:

  • Cool down.
  • Talk it out.
  • Write a response.
  • Do your homework.
  • Schedule a meeting.
  • Admit your mistakes.

On this day...
