Understanding, Listening, and... Focus!
A friend recently said to me "Todd, I love your blog, how do you get such inspiration?" It was a lovely thing for her to say, but my response was easy: "I make a conscious effort to notice remarkable things and purposely filter out junk, news and noise that may cloud my perspective of the world." Specific to this thread, I just wrote a post about truly listening to feedback during a product pitch (customers or investors). Recent experiences in listening to pitches have resulted in the entrepreneur waiting for ME to ask all the questions. If you are pitching an idea, product, movement, YOU need to ask people incredible questions and really LISTEN to their perspective. James I'm so proud to see your examples of true listening in the last paragraph, I couldn't agree more. FYI: the post I mentioned http://beingremarkable.me/blog/you-will-fail
