Sometimes when I start to get a full head of steam and start wishing something was different (like firmer calf muscles), or grumbling that something isn’t effective or efficient (like a poorly run civic meeting), the phrase, “Either put up or shut up,” pops into my head. Those six words pointedly remind me that unless I plan on contributing to try and help the cause or situation, I’d better put a lid on the complaints.
