Listening



Having been recently on the receiving end of not being heard or really listened to, I'm taking the opportunity to remind myself how important listening truly is.  I know first hand how it feels when someone doesn't make the effort to hear me.

Listening is a positive act: you have to put yourself out to do it. - David Hockney

There is a difference between listening and waiting for your turn to speak.




Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you'd have preferred to talk.
