You’re not the arrogant sort; and since cunning games of one-upmanship aren’t your style, you think other people have more influence than you. But the truth is that those other folk just create more noise. They make their points known, whether or not anyone is paying attention. And, more often than not, people just pretend to listen because it’s the easiest thing to do. They pay much closer heed to quietly spoken, thoughtful words. You can communicate what you need to share, in your own way.
