The best way to get the measure of someone is not by what they say, but by the questions they ask.
And not just by the questions they ask, but by how well they listen to your answers.
And how well question 3 links back to question 2.
And so on.
So you know they’re listening to you.
I think the most generous things a person can give to you is their time.
Because once that’s gone – it’s gone.
That’s all you get.
Money comes and goes.
Time just goes.
And if someone gives you their time and asks questions that they’re genuinely interested in having answered, so they can help you…
Well, that’s a good pal.
They’re a keeper.
And until you find one… be one.
