Empty your cup, Confused ?????
So was I the first time I came across this term, let me explain If you have cup full of tea or water can you pour more in the cup.
The obvious answer is Nope you can’t.
The only way you can pour more in is if you pour some out
The Same Principle applies when you are interacting with other people, if you hold onto what is in your cup, how can you taste the other person’s cup of tea.
The only you may can learn new things or understand another person in argument or office meetings is if your cup is empty, Stephen covey referred to this as Seek first to understand then to be understood in his book 7 habits of highly effective people
