Mini plastic toy robot - “Don't be a time manager, be a priority manager. Cut your major goals into bite-sized pieces. Each small priority or requirement on the way to ultimate goal become a mini goal in itself.”

A man realized he needed to purchase a hearing aid, but he felt unwilling to spend much money. "How much do they run?" he asked the clerk.

"That depends," said the salesman. "They run from $2.00 to $2,000."

"Let's see the $2.00 model," he said.

The clerk put the device around the man's neck. "You just stick this button in your ear and run this little string down to your pocket," he in­structed.

How does it work?" the customer asked.

"For $2.00 – it doesn't work," the sales­man replied. "But when people see it on you, they'll talk louder!"

As you know, most communication prob­lems are not due to people talking too softly. Un­for­tu­nately, we are not always good listeners. Do you know that people will pay hun­dreds of dollars an hour for no other reason than to have someone lis­ten to them?

Psychologist Carl Rogers said, "A person's real need, a most terrible need, is for someone to listen…not as a 'patient' but as a human soul." To listen well is to respond to a great human yearning.

One small child put it like this: "I'll try to listen louder." What might happen if you "listened louder" today?
