If we were meant to #talk more than #listen, we would have two mouths and one ear.

– Mark Twain

Find time today, and every day for that matter, to listen. That’s not listen with an answer to give. That’s listen with a message to hear. The person that you truly listen to will find it immensely valuing; you might just discover something that you didn’t know either!

Just listen.
