The gift you give others
The difference between a person who listens and a person who doesn’t is not a minor thing. It’s like the difference between a well-tuned car and a creaky bicycle. It’s the difference between surgically precise intervention and hitting it with a hammer.
The worst thing is, when it all goes wrong because you failed to listen, you won’t even know why.
The best, most sincere thing you can do for the people around you is really listen to what they have to say.
