Listening is more important than talking. If that were not true, God would not have given us two ears and only one mouth. Too many people are thinking with the mouth instead of listening in order to absorb new ideas and possibilities. They argue instead of asking questions.
- You cannot listen or learn if you choose to talk all the time.
- There are a lot of people who tell me “why don’t you talk more?” and the answer is “because you are not willing to listen”, is as simple as that.
- When you speak, it must be with purpose or because you’re going to provide value. Otherwise it’s better not to talk at all.
- It’s the same with debating, where the purpose is not to show that you’re right but to learn and share your perspective.
