Wise Wednesday Brain Byte: Listen to Learn

Assistive_Listening_Devices_2

Common sense tells us that we learn more by listening than by speaking.  However, we all know someone who spends more time speaking than seeking.

Speakers share knowledge; seekers soak-in knowledge.  While it is good to do both, you will have the ability to share so much more when you spend time listening to learn from those who have gone before you.

True learners make a conscious effort to soak in as much knowledge from other’s life experiences, wisdom, and advice as possible by tuning in their ears to what is spoken, tapering the desire to dominate the conversation.

Listen to Learn.

Learn to Listen.

The way of a fool seems right to him but a wise man listens to advice.      Proverbs 12:15 NIV
