Smart people make it a priority to develop their listening skills.
They listen for distress calls, things said in confidence, confessions, client needs, facts, opinions and competitor threats. They listen to their inner voice telling them great ideas.
And in the face of moral uncertainty, they listen to their conscience.
Smart people’s ears together give them balance, for their mouth to then speak.
Unsmart people make it a priority to talk at people.
They reassure themselves by listening to the sound of their own voice, no matter what it’s saying to the World.
Unsmart people don’t have time to find out what others already know, so bore them instead.
They can’t hear distress calls, confidences, confessions, needs, facts and opinions, or threats, over the sound of their own voice.
While unsmart people are so busy speaking, they can’t hear their inner voice, or listen to their conscience.
Unsmart people’s ego and insecurities give them imbalance, for their mouth to then speak.
