Excerpt from the chapter ‘The Dying Art of Listening: Listen – It Makes You Sound Smarter’ in The Virgin Way by Richard Branson
Listening is a wonderful skill, but given that the average human brain tends to store a very small percentage of what, at the time, may seem like insignificant statements and ideas, those books fill in a lot of what otherwise would be blank spaces in my memory bank. Acquiring the habit of note-taking is therefore wonderfully complementary skill to that of listening. Please write this down right now so you don’t forget!
