As it’s Tuesday, and you might be wondering how you could add value to your week, here’s an idea.
From today (or tomorrow if you need a day to think about it, that’s usually enough to kill off any idea we are unsure about), make a pledge with yourself that, for the rest of the week, you won’t say anything negative about another person.
(In the unlikely event that you’ve already reached this exalted state, substitute ‘think’ for ‘say’.)
For the rest of us, you can think what you like, just don’t let it out. To put it another way, as some of our wise grandmothers used to say: “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything”.
