N° 17 of 20: On Talking & Listening

17. TALK A LITTLE LESS, AND LISTEN MORE.

Less advice is often the best advice. 

People don’t need lots of advice, they need a listening ear and some positive reinforcement. 

What they want to know is often already somewhere inside of them

They just need time to think, be and breathe, and continue to explore the undirected journeys that will eventually help them find their direction.
