Constructive criticism is an oxymoron...in relationships, it's an interpersonal liberty taken one step too far.

People think 600-700 words per minute. People talk 100-200 words per minute. Most people listen...maybe 1 or 2.

Listening - a little bit goes a long way. Just imagine what could be accomplished by a lot of listening.
