The ONE THING for today

Your feedback is probably not wanted.

People may need feedback; but what they want is attention. 

Discipline yourself to listen deeply—pay attention!  And perhaps then (maybe not), they will be open to your feedback. 

Either way you come out ahead. No need wasting your time giving feedback when its not wanted and by listening deeply you may learn something…

…and at the least you will be investing in a much better relationship which may lead to you having a chance to give that helpful feedback someday.

The ONE THING for today: Giving your attention is usually a more treasured gift than your feedback.
