HOT Communication

The next time you communicate, just think about H.O.T.

Healthy - Is the communication or conversation you are having healthy for you and the other party. We all know that eating junk food is bad for us. Sometimes, we speak to others like we are giving them verbal junk food. Worse, our internal thoughts might be the most unhealthiest messages. 

Onward - Do you tend to speak from your mind and try to get all your thoughts out or do you tend to carry the conversation onward because you are listening to what the other person is saying and adding to the conversation?

Thoughtful - Communication should be mindful. Too often, we just say things on the top of our minds without thinking. Take some time to construct your thoughts. Usually, we are thinking about so many things, all the little pieces comes out jumbled. Imagine how that sounds like to another person.
