David Hegg: Listen up people

Some of the most intelligent and attractive people I know spend most of their conversational time listening. They take in what is being said by others, while being engaged in what has been called "active listening."

Simply said, those who listen well more often than not think before speaking, and offer their world more benefit than blather.

David Hegg: Building on trust

There is a plague in our land that the Centers for Disease Control have no way of handling. It is the plague of divisiveness, the attitude responsible for the growing division in our marriages, our politics, and our personal relationships. We've become a nation of oversensitive crybabies who will take our ball and go home over the smallest infraction. In fact, we seem poised to jump on anything we can use to undermine our opponents or criticize our friends. And it's killing us.
