LISTEN MORE, TALK LESS

kammla at 3months old

Scientifically if you are talking you cannot hear clearly. You may catch some of the words but you will not get the full meaning or message the person was trying to relay to you.

Listening is a compliment. It makes the other person believe that you truly care. It is also a way for you to be more aware of what is happening around you. Getting your point across, your joke out or your story told are all good things and they have their place, but there is also a place for being quiet and listening to someone else.

Listening is special. You can gain knowledge, friends, rewards and sometimes when you listen you get closer to your goals. When you listen you follow direction better and you can have more genuine conversations.

Listening is a sign of respect. When you speak you want the undivided attention of the person you are talking to so give the same respect back. You will have better communication, better relationships and better understanding. Listen, you might be surprised by what you hear.

Listening…Now That’s Presidential!
