The Trouble With Opinions

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.” – Apparently, it was Abraham Lincoln that said it. Huh…

Just because you think you have something to say, consider it first. Although you might think speaking up helps justify your salary sometimes all it does is call it into question. I tend to keep my mouth shut in meetings until there’s something that directly relates to my experience and/or knowledge. But I’m constantly shocked how people who seem to have no idea what their talking about feel compelled to inject their comments.

On a side note, this is 100% about a work environment. Since I enjoy shooting my mouth off pretty much anywhere else.
