Don't Waste My Time


Some of us find it difficult to initiate a conversation. They hesitate to open their mouths. They wait for others to speak up on topics that they know and have interest. Much time is wasted before a fruitful discussion can take place.

Some discussions are virtually lopsided. Some refuse to stop talking while others just don't want to open their mouths. Much time is wasted and the end results of the discussion are so little and unsatisfying.

I believe in sharing my views. I also believe in listening careful to what others can contribute. But I don't believe in wasting time.

Each day we are given ample opportunities to interact with the surrounding world. We must make full use of all opportunities to reason, to speak and to listen. Nature is full of knowledge and wisdom waiting for us to explore. There are so much for us to talk about and to share with one another.

We must think logically and creatively. We must be clear and precise in our speech. We must be certain and hold true to our words. We must talk only what is required to build others up. And we must always humbly listen to what others have to say.

Don't talk idly just to reduce tension but leave jobs undone. Don't backbite just to feel better while hurting others. Don't spread rumors just to smear other's images and to gain a better footing. Don't waste each other's time just because you are busy doing nothing.

Spend time efficiently and wisely. Make full use of each day for our own good and the good of others.

Happy is the man who waste no time to do good and to flee from evil.

So true! We should talk about things that are really important to us and really listen when others talk to us. Thanks for the reminder because I know that I sometimes can be distracted by everything else on my mind. Now I will remind myself to focus!
