Listening

A reminder that often listening, observing and contemplating is the correct action. How are we to learn if we always speak. When situations arise, often the ‘season for silence’ allows us to gather the right amount of knowledge and take stock of our emotive responses to respond with wisdom. It is a great thing to know the season for speech and the season for silence – Seneca We have been given two ears and but a single mouth in order that we may hear more and talk less.

Two ears one mouth

We have been given two ears and but a single mouth in order that we may hear more and talk less. – Zeno of Citium My interpretation of this particular quote is a personal focus for the next week or two. Ever had that realisation you are doing more talking than listening? Or that you aren’t quite as open to other ideas as you think? Particularly when deadlines are tight, the pressure is on and your the one accountable for getting a solution across the line.
