Just Enough Information

(Photo credit: vecto.rs)

Recently, I’ve been practicing “Just enough information”, learning to answer just enough to any question. There are two things that are relevant to note for this post:

  1. Not everybody needs to know
  2. Not everybody wants to know

Not everybody needs to know the in-depth details of your life, not necessarily because of who they are but because of the sensitivity of the info.

Secondly, not everybody wants to know. It’s not everyone who asks how you are doing that really wants to know- it could just be courtesy.

Let’s take a story: It’s a Monday morning, John meets Ken in the tea room. The only thing they have in common is that they work in the same company.

John: Hey Ken, how was your weekend?

Ken: Oh it was awesome! My wife and I went to see a movie. It was about a woman that cheated on her husband. Right there and then, I told my wife that if she ever cheats on me, my life is over. You know she’s my all :)…so how was yours?

John: *sips coffee* Fine 🙂

The devil is not omnipresent neither is he omniscient. He launches attacks by gathering information. Just how much information are you giving away?

Food for thought:

Of course there are those who don’t want your success but I’m not necessarily referring to them here. I’m referring to the unseen agents of the enemy.

Life nugget:

Proverbs 6:2 “Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.”
