Character currency can be one of the most important assets that we have. And we build that currency by being consistent. In words and deeds, it is important that people know what to expect from you. Even when you have mistakes, missteps or even outright misdeeds people still feel like they know who you are and what you are about. It allows them to make an informed decision about where they want you to fit into their lives. Informed by this reality, do your best to follow this philosophy:
IF YOU CAN’T SAY IT TWICE, THEN DON’T SAY IT ONCE. IF YOU SAY IT ONCE, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SAY IT TWICE WITHOUT HESITATION
We cannot call our words back to us after we send them out no matter how hard we try or how desperately we may want to. Accordingly, we need to be certain that we want them out there representing us long after the moment in which they were spoken has passed. A person cannot unhear what you have said anymore than you can unsay what you have said. Love and forgiveness may mitigate the damage of hasty words but they cannot eliminate it. Good luck & Godspeed.
