Author Dan Lyons had a bit on CBS Sunday Morning about talking less and listening more. He explained how social media interactions force over-talking and promote the belief that success is measured by attracting attention. Truly successful and powerful people talk less but with more intent, and listen more.
It made me think of the old saying:
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.Maurice Switzer, Mrs. Goose, Her Book
I’m going to shut up now.
