step back / take in

When you’re in your 20s and have that leadership gene, the bad thing is that you don’t know when to shut up. You think you know all the answers, but you don’t. What you learn later is when to just listen to everybody else…Creativity cannot explode if you do not have the ability to step back, take in what everybody else says and then fuse it with your own ideas.
