Given my business, I know the recipe for solid communication — listen first, and then think before you speak, considering the audience. Yet often I’ll fall short in the moment. I don’t speak up, fearing contempt. Or I speak out in a way that sends people rushing to the exits. Blogging is easier, avoiding as it does direct contact with pesky people. I post when the spirit moves me.
