    Don't make assumptions, for one.

    Don't take things personally.

    Sounds like a primer on professionalism. Can’t argue more of that would be bad.

    Separating opinions from facts.  Maybe most don't but far too many do...

    Maybe that just takes too much work....
    Or maybe there is anxiety about what could be uncovered, hmmm...

    (I thought it'd help if I rewrote my answer to better fit your question's wording. I hope I wasn't unclear originally.) This post was edited by WelbyQuentin at July 10, 2018 4:20 AM MDT

    I admit not fully grasping your allegory, “making Hay” in the daylight is bad?

    Funny how “making hay“ and “haymakers“ have nearly opposite connotations.  Ours is a fickle tongue.

    Being honest. Not simply just telling the truth, but working honestly and treating others honestly. People also need to do a major and honest self reflection. People continuously lie to others and themselves. Too many people don’t take an honest look at the content of their character and personality. A few years back I spent a few weeks doing an honest self reflection. I realized how many bad traits I had that I ignored or didn’t notice. I have changed for the better.

    Start with the man in the mirror. Yes. Should be a law.

    Think before they speak and then shut up before they speak.

     All are wise until they speak. He who talks most thinks least.

    Now, see?  You just spoke and should have realized I just SAID that.

    Sharon loves you.  You are the best.  (take it like a man)

    Reinforcing your point. There is solid philosophy to support it.

    They spend too much money and save too little.

    A simple "Hello". You'd (or they'd in this case) be surprised by the stuff that follows. Not everybody is out to get you (or them in this case).
