Speaking of Good Habits & Constructive Criticism...

If those ancient Romans could have that kind of self-control, just think what 21st Century business people could accomplish if they put their minds to it!

Doubters don't build.

Doubters criticize. Doubters demotivate. Doubters question when questions are simply annoying.

In these ways, doubters are destroyers.

 

 

 

Better to be skilled at puzzles than cross words.

Puzzles are part of life. Often they turn out to be doors to opportunities.

Cross words are criticism and constructive criticism is an oxymoron.

And yes, crosswords are puzzles.

Sometimes it only takes a little prick to burst your bubble.

Criticism, especially pointy little pieces of it, pierces. 

You can gauge a person by the size of the criticism.

And...

Constructive Criticism is an Oxymoron.

You too can see the positive things in people...just open your mind then your eyes.

When you have a positive mental attitude you are less critical of others.

When you have an agreeable personality you are less critical of others.

When you want to and think you can...you will see the best in people.

Beware: a dose of your own medicine could be a tough pill to swallow.

Most of us have heard the proverb "Physician heal thyself."

The moral of the proverb is fix your own defects before you criticize other people's defects

And the essence of this and other similar proverbs is constructive criticism is an oxymoron

Constructive criticism is an oxymoron: that's a rule to live by.
