Wag puro dada! Occ. Mindoro Rep. Gov. Gene Mendiola touts the importance of listening
For Occidental Mindoro Gov. Gene Mendiola, doing is better than talking. And listening is best.
In a Facebook post, Mendiola said it was good to work hard in silence. According to him, it’s better to listen to people rather than to talk all the time.
By listening to others, public officials get to learn their concerns and what kind of actions they need to take.
When officials listen, they are able to offer genuine assistance, the kind that does not ask for anything in return, he added.
Your deeds are more important than your words!
“Work hard in silence.
Mas maigi yung nakikinig kesa laging nagsasalita.
Dun kasi nalalaman kung ano ang dapat aksyunan.
Isapuso po natin ang pagtulong. Walang hihinging kapalit.
Diyos at tao din naman ang makakaalam ng totoo,” he said.
