Listen

“We see the world not as it is, but as we are.” ~Anaïs Nin

I found a page of paper with unlabeled notes – was I summarizing a reading? A lecture? A sermon? I’m not sure, but I am intrigued.
Listen so you can:
  • solve problems
  • sound more intelligent
  • appear to be more caring
  • be in a better position to negotiate
  • benefit from others’ experience.
Of course, this does make the act of listening seem a bit manipulative if not Machiavellian!
