Are You Using Discretion Daily?

Here’s Bill Butler’s take on discretion:
HINDSIGHT may be 20/20, but DISCRETION is 80/80! How many times have you said, “Gee, I wish I hadn’t done that”… “I should have thought about that more.”
DISCRETION is SOUND JUDGMENT. It is the PRESENCE of MIND to PREVENT PROBLEMS.
Here are 21 BENEFITS of DISCRETION:
1. AVERTS AWKWARD APOLOGIES.
2. AVOIDS AGGRAVATION
3. BOYCOTTS BAD BEHAVIOR.
4. CALLS for CIRCUMSPECTION.
5. CAUSES CONSIDERATION
6. CIRCUMVENTS CARELESSNESS …
7. DISALLOWS DUMB DECISIONS.
8. DIVERTS DANGER
9. ELIMINATES EMBARRASSMENT
10. FORESEES FAILINGS of FUTURE FOLLY.
11. HEIGHTENS HEEDFULNESS
12. IMPEDES INJURY and INSULT.
13. INCREASES INTELLIGENCE
14. OPENS OPTIONS
15. OPTIMIZES OBSERVATIONS
16. PREVENTS PITFALLS
17. REINFORCES RESPONSIBILITY
18. RULES out REGRET and REMORSE.
19. STRENGTHENS SHREWDNESS
20. UPGRADES UNDERSTANDING
21. WARNS the WISE to be WARY.
Perhaps DISCRETION can SERVE you well as a QUESTION:… Do I Smartly Control Regrettable Expressions To Improve On Now?
Then, again, it may be the ANSWER you’re looking for:… Diplomacy In Sensitively Communicating Respectfully Emphasizes Thoughtful Interaction Of Neighbors. Have a TACTFUL Thursday, friends!
