Who knows something you don’t?

Everyone.

It’s an advertisement for listening. It should be paid for by the Association for the Advancement of Good Listening Skills. If an organization like that doesn’t exist, I should found it.

Celeste Headlee highlights excellent points in her Ted Talk. We don’t listen because we are so busy thinking about what we are going to say next. It’s more important and valuable to be present. Just listen. Let the clever quips and relevant stories flow into your brain and watch them go right out.

It’s a practice at which everyone, except perhaps a seasoned therapist, can work on.
