Live Inspired Vlog #163: Find the Common Ground

A Lesson on Taking Time to Listen

On my most recent Live Inspired Podcast episode, I visited with Marcus Adrian, a phenomenal thinker and an accomplished architect, and I asked him, “What’s the key to designing these beautiful structures you work on?” Marcus’ response surprised me.

He said, “I’m a good listener.”

In addition to bringing forth the innovative ideas in his head, he takes the time to listen and incorporate the wants, needs, and desires of the clients he serves.

As we approach problems in our families, workplaces, communities, states, and the world, I encourage us to heed Marcus’ advice. Let’s not only be passionate about our beliefs, but let’s also be bold enough to listen to those who think, believe, and feel differently than us.

In doing so, we’ll be able to design our best lives yet.

Today is your day. Live Inspired.
