Listen. Learn. Adapt.
I've noticed as I've grown older that I do less talking and more listening. This is a good thing. After all, I know me. I've known me for 32 years. I'm more interested in things that aren't me; things that help me to be better, do better and see things in a different light.
As the youngest of six kids, my role was often that of the listener...but I wasn't always a good one. I try harder now. I make an effort to trim the noise and listen. Really listen.
It's a great way to learn; learn about other people, methods, process, insight, ideas, best practice, new practice, etc. Learning enables me to change, improve and adapt. I've found that I do my best work when I follow this formula.
