In your business, do you stick to the facts or engage in judgmental commentary?

Scripture states, "But refuse foolish and ignorant speculations, knowing that they produce quarrels" (2 Timothy 2:23 NASB).
Often, we are tempted to argue without gathering in all the facts, or take inflexible, rigid positions before the facts have been established. When issues arise, focus first on understanding the problem or issue. Make sure all the facts have been placed on the table. Ask probing questions; establish the reality of the situation. Most of the time, when the facts are clearly presented and understood, a distinct path will emerge for the best direction forward. Your decisions will be balanced, correct, and fair. Better decisions will help your business run more smoothly.
