Where Do You Get The Time to Criticize?

How come we have time to criticize someone’s post on Facebook but don’t have time to read books?

How come we have time to criticize other people’s works but don’t have time to create our own?

How come we have time to criticize our friends’ behaviors, but don’t have time to correct our mistakes and improve ourselves?

For every second we criticize someone, we lose a second we could have used to learn things relevant to our goals.

We lose a second to write our thoughts, get active, learn, and create something.

We lose a second to do something meaningful.

Here’s a challenge: Every time you feel the urge to criticize someone, think what you can do instead to make things better for them. Think about the solution. Think about encouragement.

Maybe constructive criticism can help in some cases. But for most, our criticisms aren’t actually needed. We just want to criticize because it makes us feel superior, and it’s so much easier than working and creating and pursuing our dreams.

Consider this solution:

Get busy pursuing your dreams that you don’t have time to criticize others.

I question a lot of things. And I try to understand them through reading and writing. I'm not always right. And I've written things that I now disagree with. I'm fine with that. Things change. We are a work in progress. If you have questions, let's chat.
