  1. What was it that inspired you to write Before You Hit Send
  2. What have you noticed in working with couples over this issue?
  3. How can someone repair the damage if they pressed “send” when they shouldn’t have?
  4. What are the factors in someone’s life that would lead them to hit “send” when they shouldn’t?
  5. If I find myself in an environment that is full of untrue, unkind, unnecessary, and unclear communication, what should I do?
  6. A most significant point of this book is this: If what we think is true, kind, necessary and clear, we need to have the courage to hit send. This isn’t about refraining from speaking, this is about speaking. A lot of this comes down to fear—what would you say to the fearful?
  7. Before You Hit Send:  From external examples to internal turmoil, Before You Hit Send is about the four things we must think through before communicating. In all things we wish to say or write, we would be wise to ask ourselves,
    1. Is it true?
    2. Is it kind?
    3. Is it necessary?
    4. Is it clear?
