The Word That Is Heard

“Hear the meaning within the word.”

— William Shakespeare

So many words are written everyday. So many words spoken.

So much is said, yet so little is heard.

So many words written. Less are read. Even less are understood.

However, when we really take the time to understand what we read and to hear what is spoken, we reach a deeper understanding.

Listening is a skill that can be developed. It’s a skill that is vastly under appreciated, except by those who need to be heard.

The written word and the spoken word pale in comparison to the word that is heard.

Today’s gift of time … Helped the Conestoga Middle School teachers pack and move their supplies. I tried to lend a sympathetic ear and a genuine smile where I could.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
