We Have Two Ears, One Mouth For A Reason. “It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows.” – Epictetus. There's a wonderful expression.

Munching on greens is optional. What does that mean? Somehow, I imagine this was an old saying before Epictetus latched on to it. It certainly survives to this day, as evidenced by quite a number of parents trying to convince their young children to speak less and listen more.

What I can tell you is that you are wrong. You did listen. You listened to yourself.

  1. In case you don’t remember what is on the other side of the comma as to why “so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.”. In my opinion, listening is one of the most powerful tools we as human beings have, quite simply because it is the way we learn and grow.
