The No Complaining Rule


Author Jon Gordon has written many good books, you can find them here.  Recently, he posted a quote about complaining on his twitter account., and I loved it.  I tweaked it just a little, but the majority of it is his.

"Complaining is like vomiting in public.  Afterwards you feel better, but everyone else around you feels sick."

I will be the first to admit that I can be one of the worst complainers there is.  It often stems from frustration that I cannot control everything and it makes me feel better.  Yet, maybe I am making everyone else around me sick.

This book gives some good ideas on what to do before you complain.  Give it a read.
