Yogiisms are, of course, famous sayings by Yogi Berra. Many of the things he has said seem silly at first glance, but upon further inspection, are actually brilliant! Take a look at this one:
"You can observe a lot just by watching." -Yogi Berra
One of the problems in communication is that we don't always slow down long enough to pay close attention to others. We are so caught up in our own "stuff" that we don't often take the time to really see others. We may not notice their pain, a way we can help, an opportunity to share and connect. Yogi's seemingly obvious statement is actually a pearl of wisdom, a pearl of communication wisdom we would do well to heed. You can, indeed, observe a lot just by watching.
