I am sometimes guilty of over explaining.

And it can influence people’s perception of me.

It can make me seem patronising.

Or unconfident.

Or both.

Perception.

I forget that people can only truly understand things from their perception.

And that all I am really doing by super-explaining anything is trying to show another person why I did what I did, or why I think what I think, from my perception.

And in moments of clarity – like now – I think you myself, why would I ever want to do that?

Life is so short.

Most times it’s easier to, well, just ‘do’.

I bet that if I added up how many minutes of my life I spend ‘doing’ and how many minutes of my life I spent ‘explaining why I did’ – I’d get a shock.

What a waste!

If I do a lot less explaining, I’ll have more time for doing more doing.

So that’s what I’m going to do.
