Informed decisions are the most powerful ones.
Informed questions tease out the deepest responses.
Informed reflection produces the richest analyses.
Informed investments yield the healthiest returns.
Informed actions generate the best results.
The wisest folks I know seek to center themselves in that "informed" category by honing and practicing two critical attributes:
- They are superb listeners.
- They are intensely astute observers.
Truth: It's extremely difficult to engage well in either of those practices if one's mouth is running.
Just sayin'. Or not.
