I like the visual of thinking about passing through gates before you speak… I know I have a tendency to just say what I think without filtering and sometimes there needs to be a filter! ; )
By using these 3 gates, it gives you time to think about what you are going to say:
- Is it true?
- Is it necessary?
- And most importantly… Is it kind?
Why don’t you try it and let me know how it works for you!
