Learn When To Shut Up
When you don’t talk much, they think you are shy and dumb.
When you know what you are saying, they see you smart.
But when you talk too much, they tag you as a wussy whiner.
I shut up and keep my ears and eyes open. Seriously, these days I tend to shut up in terms of external analysis and DO try to let things speak for themselves, while still trying to get some depth into them.
