When you hear a good idea, focus on what you can do on a practical level to apply what you have learned. Don't feel that you fulfill your obligation by just hearing good ideas. On the practical level, what can you do to improve?
(see Rabbi Eliyahu Lopian - Lev Eliyahu, vol.1, p.154; Rabbi Pliskin's
"Consulting the Wise")
