Sometimes I remind myself this thought: “Nothing I say this day will teach me anything. So if I’m going to learn, I must do it by listening” ~Larry King
As a dispatch engineer, I speak a lot over the phone. Sometimes I talk all day when there’s a lot of work. But I realise that every time I speak I am only sharing things I already know. But every time I listen I am learning new things. And it’s wonderful.
Learn the art and science of listening. Because listening is the beginning of understanding. This week I’ll attend an orientation, I’ll be able to practice listening a lot more than speaking. Good to be learning new things.
Finally, God gave us two ears and a mouth; means we have to listen twice as much we talk. 😊
