Wow! This is one card that I really need to practice and very diligently for I have the proverbial foot-in-mouth disease. I have always been accused of being “blunt” ( since school days) and it has never been intended as a compliment. While working in a corporate set-up, one senior gave me this feedback ” you should try to be a little more polite while speaking your mind”.
Point to be noted, my lord!
I guess my tact-o-meter is damaged by birth and I have struggled to get the right modem of diplomacy in my words. But every time that I do check myself, my internal voice whispers “hypocrite”.
I feel I am being fake, if I don’t mince my words; its kind of like a double-edged sword for me.
So this card is really great; finally I have a checklist to measure my words by. I cant guarantee how successful this will be but its worth a try. What say you?
On the other hand, I am very hard on myself. I am overtly critical and therefore have a low self-esteem which in turn leads to jumping to silly conclusions. I internally agonise so much over stuff that even if nothing is the matter, the issue becomes complicated and I end up being miserable.
Lets see where this card leads me…..
Whats your tact-o- meter like? I could use some tips on this.
