    Restraint

    When someone is creating a volatile situation, restraint becomes our key ingredient. Unbridled corrections in rapid succession are not recommended. Take a moment or three and assess the situation in its entirety before speaking or inquiring about any possible solutions.

    Often restraint is required when we are tempted to go to extreme or excess. It is super easy to keep offering lots of suggestions like we might do to one of our children in an effort to help them improve their social skills. This response is self-defeating and overwhelming to the recipient.

    We also need restraint when we are presented with decisions which might boost the profit but adversely hurt the employees. Refuse to yield to opportunities for quick gain but may damage our company or employees’ lives in the long run.

    The slightest of all restraints is overindulgence. It seems so innocent to have just one more dessert or on more drink. In the end, it will be determinal to our health and our family.

    So restraint is a positive and ever present attitude to carry with us at home or at the office.
