“Poor listening habits are responsible for many of our daily woes. Whether it’s a damaging disagreement with a co-worker, a miscommunication with a spouse or partner, or an awful customer service experience, the smoking gun is often a simple failure to pay attention–to truly listen to what the other person is saying.”

For Creative Cities, the Sky Has Its Limit — It’s not enough to build tall if people aren’t thrown together to interact.

For the first time in history, more than half of the people in the world, 3.3 billion of us, live in cities. By 2050, according to the best projections, urbanites will account for as much as 70% of the global population.
