Hear Ideas Out, Before You Criticize them.

listen and learn, 3D rendering, a yellow road sign
I was just reminded of something very important. I was listening to Outsmart Yourself: Brain-Based Strategies to a Better You   and I heard several things in it that initially sounded stupid. Once I heard the speaker’s explanation for these counter-intuitive ideas, they suddenly made a lot of sense!
How many times have we heard some new piece of information and automatically tuned out the person speaking, because we thought the idea was stupid, or contradicted something that someone else told us? We need to hear people out, not only because it is the loving thing to do, but because we don’t know everything, and everyone has the potential of knowing something that we don’t.
