Micro Entrepreneurism, Simple Living & Art

listening with different ears

we dont always ask for advice. and sometimes we do without meaning to. sometimes we do and we dont want to hear it. there is an art to this advice give and take. and i dont like the word advice because it seems to imply that one persons genius supersedes the next. its a thought process, a conversation, a discussion, a learning experience.

ive had a lot of these conversations in my lifetime. im sure we all have. im learning how to learn better. while some sources present ideas im not willing to believe in (and believing is the key, because thats all any of us have), i am beginning to wonder if more and more its not that the ideas arent something i could and/or want to believe in, its that i was unable to understand them in the manner they were presented to me. nothing about they said “hit home.” it didnt seem relevant or applicable. and yet i go and read something else, or have a conversation with a different person and the way they come to the same conclusion as the first makes it seem so much more reasonable that i start to want to readjust.

presentation is huge, gigantic, enormous. far bigger then content. i think more people have content then we realize, but only a few have the ability to present it in a way that makes people want to listen, understand, and believe. im working on it. not for the masses- but for the people that im interested in, the ones that matter to me.
