Be kind, not nice.

The problem with being “nice”:

  • Nice people are often not really nice at all because they avoid saying the things that most need to be said.
  • Ruinous empathy is nice but it’s not kind.
  • It’s unkind to the person to withhold the constructive criticism they need most. It’s also unkind to deliver that feedback poorly.

The solution:

  • Remember, that being nice can be very unkind.
