So true in mediation and in life...

“It is better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt." This was Mediator Jeff’s quote of the day last Friday on his blog, Enjoy Mediation.

His quote reminds me of the importance of hearing and really “listening.” I collect drink koozies – the dumber, the better. My favorite koozie right now says “your lips are moving but all I hear is blah, blah, blah.” I love this koozie but is it really dumb? I think not.

Mediator Jeff’s quote reminds us to stop talking and hear more than “blah, blah, blah” because I can assure you that there is more being said than that.
