I realized this weekend listening was really important. I had always known this, it is not like it is something I randomly discovered; like the guy who came up with sticky notes. It is something that is so essential though. Someone can say something but that is only half the message. If the person does not listen or hear you, the message never gets across. Also maybe even worse than not hearing the message at all is only getting bits or pieces. In this kind of situation the person may hear some of it but make up something else to fit for what they missed. Oh listening is such a vital key to our existence. Just image if the Sec. Of Defense said "Those blasted Russians" and the President heard "Blast the Russians". While usually not this drastic listening is such and important tool. Just thought I would say this.
