Re-Think What You Say For Better Results

If Only I Could Take That Back!

How many times have you said something and wished afterwards that you could have taken those words back.  Imagine how the outcome could have differed if you had just re-phrased your words.  Sometimes, how you say or write something can be just as important as the meaning you are trying to convey.

I’m reminded of one of my favorite movies starring Bill Murray.  Groundhog Day is the perfect example of how one man could change the outcome just by changing his behavior.  And the best part? He got to do it over and over until he got it right! I can’t even count the number of times I have wished for a “rewind” button in situations where I’ve said the wrong thing at the wrong time.  Usually, my brain works faster than my mouth, but sometimes, the opposite happens and I get into trouble.

My boss shared a short video with me that was touching, and I wanted to pass it on to others as well.  So, in the spirit of sharing, watch this video and see if you can change what you say in future conversations.
