30 Days of Advice: Day 9 — Practise the Art of Listening

Listen! You have two ears, one mouth use them proportionally.

My advice for Day 9 of what I would share with my 18-year-old self if we were to meet up for a coffee this morning would be to practise the art of listening.

I was never the smartest guy in the room, but I do ask questions. I have lived my life by being interested in other people’s stories and It has done me well. So my advice to my younger self is listen to listen not to respond.

Do you agree? What advice would you share with your younger self?

30 Days of Advice is where I share one piece of advice from my podcast guests and life each day. Would love to get your feedback.
