Betcha can't guess what these famous people have in common. Not in a zillion years.
You know, someone once told me that I need to shut up, calm down and listen if I ever wanted to learn ANYTHING. To which I responded, SHUT UP, flailing my arms while shouting YOU DON'T KNOW NUTHIN!, and then plugged my ears with my fingers. I think I was 7. Or maybe 27.
It took a while for the advice to sink in, but it has to an extent, and the advice is holding true.
Guess what happened?
I started to learn things.
Curiouser and curiouser.
