Don’t be afraid to offer your views on a subject if asked.  After all, that’s why someone is asking you for your opinion.

I read a great book by Timothy Ferriss called the 4-hour workweek.  He touches on things that waste time.  I totally connected with what he was saying.  The worse feeling is asking someone for an opinion on a certain subject and that person turns around and asks you what your thoughts are instead of offering their opinion.

People are engaging with you for a reason.  Offer a solution, don’t think you are being nice by NOT giving your opinion.  You are simply wasting time.  Time wasters are no fun.

I usually start offering my opinion with the following statements;

I suppose we…

We can…

Let’s try…

My impression is…

I personally think….

I would say…

In my opinion…

I love working towards change.  If you are not offering your opinion when asked lets start today.  No more wasting time your thoughts are valuable.
