There is a full moon tomorrow so if I’m extra sassy right now, that’s why. Our bodies are 70% water so if you don’t think we’re affected by the full moon which controls the tides (hello) start paying attention to that. I promise you you’ll start to notice that people get crazy about 2 days before there’s a full moon.
I have one lesson for us today and it’s this: Curb your enthusiasm. Yep, that’s right. Curb it.
There’s an English proverb that reads: Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. True?
I am all about having a say and having your voice heard. But in this digital age where it is all too easy to rant and go off on crazy tangents that only you care about (seriously, only you!) well, I just need you to google “succinct.” No. Let me google that for you.
Now I need you to put succinct writing and speech in practice and remember that your words are important. Really important. SO. VERY. IMPORTANT. Are you hearing me? Filter what you say. Edit yourself. Commit to that for the better of humankind.
Enthusiasm is good - great even - but it should be curbed, and especially whilst in the company of those you don’t know well. Because I’m telling you, your enthusiasm can go overboard and can turn people off. And I don’t want that for you, for us. I certainly don’t want that reflecting negatively on your company.
Restraint comes with maturity. I think. Some just naturally have more of it. Some just have a need to say more. Another thing you learn as you get older - the more you know the more you realize you don’t know nuthin’. (Grammar police!)
So curb your enthusiasm. Sit back and listen for a bit. Try and keep it to 140 or less - everywhere. See what you learn. And then get back to me.
And dudes - don’t be mad. Remember the full moon. It’s not my fault. Swear.
