This tag #hubskiselfhelpclub will not be for everyone. If you think this is lame, then ignore the tag and leave us to our personal growth.

We have had a lot of accountability on Hubski in relation to physical and professional pursuits.

I want to run a 1/2 marathon. or I don't know what to do with my life type of posts are quite common, and there's nothing wrong with that. We are all striving to better ourselves and our positions. We challenge one another on Hubski often, and it's one of the things I like most about the place.

So, I thought I would start a weekly, or bi-weekly challenge that relates more to the behavioral, the inter-personal or even spiritual challenges we face. This tag should be used to present a challenge that could help us better ourselves and live more in line with our individual values. Because our values are individual in nature, not all of these challenges will speak to everyone.

Here is my first challenge that I would invite anyone who clicks the hubwheel next to this post to partake in. For one week, let's try to be more mindful that our words be "Impeccable".

Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.

Have a great week!

This should include what we write as well as what we "say."

Did this idea come from The Challenger Sale? The book looks interesting.

Perhaps the slow response is because to "say only what you mean" requires that you know what you mean and you are able to choose the best words to say it.

But how often do words move us and others in the direction of truth and love? Truth and love might be the subtext, not the text.

I didn't speak to too many humans today, but I did try to be impeccable. Unfortunately, when the recipient of one's words is stressed and fragile or distracted and overwhelmed, it doesn't matter how impeccable my words are. I may as well be talking to lambda.
