I am sometimes guilty of over explaining.
And it can influence people’s perception of me.
It can make me seem patronising.
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.
