Before You…


Before you speak, listen.
Before you write, think.
Before you spend, earn.

Before you die, give.
― William Arthur Ward

But some conversations are not two-way. Some conversations – if we are to fully engage – require our silence.

The next time you’re presented with the opportunity consider putting your listening hat on and leaving it there.
