Listen. Take the best. Leave the rest.
This quote by Richard Branson is short & sweet, but powerful. But, it offers a great lesson in life. It is appropriate for business, relationships, life in general. The great thing about this quote and the way Richard Branson put it is the structure. Three separate sentences. Three key points.
- Listen. – being a good listener is hard for a lot of people. Actually listening is hard for most people. Listening isn’t hard, you say. I listen to everyone, you say. I don’t have a hearing problem, mister! No, most of us don’t have a hearing problem problem. We often hear some people, but most of us DON’T LISTEN to people. People talk to us, and we may hear them. More often than not, we actually hear very little. We are too busy thinking about what we are going to say to them next. This is especially true in business. We want to have the right comeback, the right counter to their objections, the answer to their question. While formulating our responses, we stop listening to them. We even stop hearing them at times. All we hear is ourselves talking in our mind.What we fail to do most often is listen to what they are saying, how they are saying it, what they really mean. We often don’t listen to what they are telling us. We hear their words, but not their intention, their meaning. Think about it the next time you are listening to someone…..No I’m just kidding. Don’t think about it. Just listen. Listen to what they are really saying before you formulate an answer.
- Take the best. – When you talk to people you are going to get a lot of information. Some of the information, the advice, the thoughts, meandering will produce gems of knowledge, wisdom and truth. Take the Best of what you hear. Learn from it. Save the knowledge for later. Use it when you need it.
- Leave the rest. – Some of what you hear will be useless crap. Let it go Some of it will be negative. Let it go. Some of it just won’t be meant for your. Let it go. If it doesn’t move you forward. If it doesn’t make you better. If it doesn’t improve your life. Let it go.
Go Out Today and Listen. Take the best. Leave the rest.
