I don’t mean to be rude . . . but Shut Up!

One of the best things you can do, in many area of your life, is to be silent and take in the world. Here are three quick thoughts.

First, we all hear the advice over and over: You have two ears and one mouth, so you should do twice as much listening as talking. True enough. At work, at home, and with our children. Let the other person give you all the information they have so you can make better decisions.

Second, examine what truly successful people do. In high level meetings, the person who says the least is usually the decision maker. They observe the discussion and take in the advice. They know they can speak whenever they want to, but that’s not necessarily what’s needed from them.

Third, try some quiet time. Every morning, sit quietly by yourself and think about the day ahead.

If you love truth,
Be a lover of Silence.
Silence like the sunlight will illuminate you in God
And will deliver you from the phantoms of ignorance.
Silence will unite you to God…
  — Thomas Merton
