A Quote For a Year That Has Passed/Martin Rosenfeld,JD

Posted on January 3, 2021


This past year of 2020 was one filled with divisions, fighting words, and verbal assaults. It is helpful to consider a quote that talks of peace and a pursuit of peace. This quote is by Peter Drucker:

“The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn’t being said.”

Sometimes what is not said is the other party’s fear and concern for their own well-being. If they strike out at another, it may be due to inner doubts and insecurities. Let’s make 2021 a year of directed listening and peaceful purpose. Mediate don’t litigate.
