How big is your mouth?



Sure, everyone is entitled to their opinion. But whether the opinion carries weight depends on the expertise of the person. Which means the person have the skills and knowledge to back up that opinion. If the answer is yes, well then we commonly refer to it as an expert opinion. People pay attention to it. We give it credence.

If the person giving an opinion does not have the expertise then it’s just as good as my comments while watching America’s Cup. I can’t tell cheese from chalk when it comes to yachts. Much less watch a race about it.

Comment with wisdom. Criticize without condemning. Use grace to have your opinion heard. A wide open mouth may reveal the shallowness of your brains.

What’s your expertise?
