Two ears and one tongue
Having two ears and one tongue, we should listen twice as much as we speak.
~ Turkish Proverb Source: https://proverbicals.com/ears
“Long before human beings first carved figures on cave walls, people were gathering together to share stories that taught, inspired and entertained. We seem to be wired to absorb what we hear, so when we listen to a podcast, we tend to listen intently. We don’t skim or scan the way we might do with a news article or a blog post. We create images in our minds of the scenes being described. We connect to the story, and we learn.”…
…“Not only can you listen during your commute, while waiting in line or on a plane, but you can also listen while you’re doing all those activities of daily living that eat up so much time, from laundry to home maintenance and repairs.”

Give yourself direction and let the plan unfold.
