Would you just stop and listen for a minute?

What a brilliant video. In it, Julian Treasure teaches us  "5 ways to listen better". With so much taking up our time, so much noise around us, so much to distract us, don't you think it would be nice if you just sat still for a moment and took the time to really listen to your friends? Listen to what's bothering them, what's troubling them, what excites them. Listen to what they're passionate about. Or, on a personal note, take time to just sit and listen to the silence. I know that its hard for me. I'm always plugged in and listening to music or watching tv or whatever. I don't sit and listen to the birds or frogs or whatever other wildlife is out there. Why not take a couple of minutes to do that? It could help to center yourself and possibly make you a better person.
