A "hobo" clown at heart, down on my luck (previously but not now), but eternally optimistic :o)
Love this Hemingway quote. Truly inspirational. So sad but true, though. "Most people NEVER listen."
Listening, and REALLY thinking, will save you so much meshugas in the long run.
Yes! It's hard to stay in the moment and not be thinking of how to respond, but we should all get a little more comfortable with silence and pauses.
The best and most successful folk I have known, have had that trait, they WOULD LISTEN. I look back at our times together and I remember thinking this guy knows me.True that: LISTEN!
That great, I'll have to sahre that!
Hemingway sure nailed it. Listening is a real skill. Too many people feel they have to keep yammering ... much better to listen and evaluate before offering up an opinion!
I love this Post.............there are not too many good listeners out there........
Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
