Today I just want to pass along a simple yet valuable piece of advice. My advice: Just listen! Thatâ€™s it. I am saying this because there is too much valuable information being ignored simply because it comes from people you do not like, do not trust or who have a questionable past. Donâ€™t deny yourself valuable information simply because the value of the messenger is in question.
Likewise we tend to listen all too much to bad information because we trust or think we should trust the source. Unsubstantiated information and pure lies flow from journalists to politicians to clergy men and women. Practice critical thinking, common sense and evaluate the message, not the messenger.
We will all benefit if we simply evaluated information based on the merit of the information, not the informant. Think about it!
