We all learned this somewhere around elementary school.
I think I still might have a problem with this today.
I eat too fast, and maybe I don’t chew before I swallow. I just eat.
And then I start talking because everyone has to hear everything that I have to say, and a piece of broccoli comes flying out of my mouth into someone else’s face.
2014 is the year of learning how to listen more and talk less.
Eating with your mouth full isn’t simply an etiquette that applies to the dining table. It applies to your thoughts, your learning, and any other time you’re bringing new things into your life.
Talking with your mouth full makes your talk less coherent, less understandable, messier, and much less attractive.
Enjoy your food, your learning processes, and your thoughts. There will always be time to share.
