Have you ever experienced a time when you wanted to send an email to someone sharing how you felt about a situation? Perhaps that email may have been a bit insulting, with sharp criticism towards them? Before drafting your next email, pause and consider
Dale Carnegie’s first principle from his best selling book, How to Win Friends & Influence People:
“Don't criticize, condemn or complain”
Everyone interprets criticism differently, especially in email format, where tone is unknown. Instead of condemning people, try to understand them and figure out why they do what they do.
Dealing with people is an art and there is a technique to doing it effectively. It takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving. At Maine Life Real Estate Co., we feel strongly about Principle #1, don't criticize, condemn or complain,
and work hard at implementing this into our everyday life. We recommend this as a great read to help in every aspect of your life!
