Pagan Virtues -- Precision

Monday, September 29, 2008
Precision. Such an open ended word. What exactly is meant by it in this context? We can define it as the act of being precise and accurate. But I don't think that it is enough of a meaning to answer the question. Rather I would say that precision is being precise in thought, word and action. Meaning that we should strive to be unambiguous in speech and action.

To many people I have met seem to have a problem just speaking their mind. We couch ourselves in half truths and hesitate to speak our minds. Instead we should be upfront and honest with first ourselves and then with everyone else in our lifes.

I have just finished reading a book, called 'Fierce Conversations.' This book does a great job of addressing the benefits of being "real" in our conversations, with real world examples and exercises and lessons. If you have ever wished that you could find the courage to speak your mind, then this is the book for you. For if we are not precise then how can people know what we mean or want.

Blessed Be!
