This may sound elementary; however I wish folks would “Stop Telling People What They Want To Hear!” More often than not people sugar-coat things and basically tell people what they want to hear. This happens in marriages, relationships, educational settings, from the pulpit, work environments and countless other arenas.
We need less political correct, candy-coated politician interactions and more keepin’ it real. Telling people what they want to hear is a loose loose proposition; one person holds back and the other person genuinely doesn’t know where they stand. These types of interactions create “The World of The Oblivious.”
Don’t confuse keepin’ it real with being rude or crude. Tone, style and delivery are Oh So important. It doesn’t matter if you are the “Good Cop” or the “Bad Cop.” What’s important is that you be “The Cop” and write the ticket. Write the ticket, keep it real and Stop Telling People What They Want To Hear!
