Re: Who are you?

I have grown in this existence to listen. This is the crux for any and all professional and personal interaction.
True listening eventually provides all knowledge for consideration.
This is beyond claiming or potentially being a "good listener"
This is the 'why' not understood, before the reactionary problems, our world community encounters.
Listening can be auditory and/or transitional from other input sources, i.e., visual reading is transferred to one's mind-voice for interpretation.
Even a hearing or sight disabled individual has a mindful voice in whatever 'language' they uniquely come to understand. A 'language,' it is estimated, no one else can or may know.
So, I mean to be a listener, a continual absorber of information/knowledge. Base on this, I strive to prevent problems vs. having to overcome them. I work to "not start part way in" based on MY experience, MY (incomplete) knowledge, MY (biased)opinions, instead start from a true beginning with each individual/situation encountered. Creating an increased ratio for agreement, due to the increased ratio of understanding is the answer to all we conflict over.

Could you give up complaining for a whole month? That's the crux of this interesting piece by Jessica Hullinger over at Fast Company. Hullinger explores the reasons why humans are so predisposed to griping and why, despite these predispositions, we should all try to complain less. As for no complaining for a month, that was the goal for people enrolled in the Complaint Restraint project.

Participants sought to go the entirety of February without so much as a moan, groan, or bellyache.
