Isn't it funny how thirty people can listen to the same speaker and have thirty different responses.
I've done it myself - sat in a room listening to someone speak at a seminar and thought how boring or irrelevant their talk was. But later on, comparing thoughts with others, find that they thought the speaker was wonderful.
We can all project our knowledge to the world at large - but the world isn't always listening.
Some days I get emails that say how the writer felt that this newsletter was talking directly to them, and in the same inbox others say that they didn't think much of the edition.
It isn't in the speaker, it is in the listener.
There is no solution. We are all different and have different needs right now.
The only advice I can offer is that we all should take notes even if the subject matter doesn't seem to be exactly what we want. Because, tomorrow it might be.
Our needs change. Sometimes we NEED a reminder of something basic, sometimes we NEED to be stretched.
Whoever you are listening to - whether a family member or a public speaker - pay active attention. there might just be something in what they are saying that you will NEED tomorrow....
