We all have a conscience that is constantly talking to us. Whenever you are doing anything, a soft inner voice will tell you if it is OK to do this or not. Or may you should do it differently. When you start listening to this voice and responding, the voice grows louder. If you keep ignoring this, the voice also becomes softer and softer – to the point that you may not even hear it talking.
Say you are wasting time checking your email or reading forum posts for hours. Your conscience will tell you to stop and get back to doing the creative work or finish your client’s assignment. Would you respond and change course or keep doing the ‘Busy-doing-nothing’ chore? I know several times my conscience has told me to not deal with a particular client and whenever I have ignored its advice, I have been burnt.
Do you listen to your conscience? Does it even talk to you any more? Please share your thoughts with fellow readers through the comments.
