THIS. Really, truly listen. Do not simple glaze over until it's your turn to respond. LISTEN first. Then reply.

I would be more than happy to listen to you while you say it to my face. @Alisha Sopota Sopota

When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new. ~ Dalai Lama

don't worry about those who talk behind your back

Ralph Waldo Emerson ..*

Yes. You cannot take back what's been said or done. Wait for a cooler head to act.

It's so easy to be drawn into a rut by the daily routines of life and work. Always look for new things to learn and do, new places to go, new people to meet.

Love this Quote! The Purpose Of Life Is Not To Be Happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson #Life #Purpose #Happiness #Quotes #Words #Inspiration #RWE #Emerson #Ralph_Waldo_Emerson #Sayings

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Lead by example

I'm slow to warm up to people. I have a weird sense of humor. I talk too much. Sometimes, I don't want to talk at all. I'm fiercely loyal. I'm independent. But I still like to lean on someone every once and a while. I'm me....take it or leave it.
