And I mean really listening to what someone is saying! Or, are you thinking how to reply or what to say next? Or, are you distracted by what is going on around you? Or is your attention taken away by the incoming e-mail, text or that crazy ringtone on your phone?
Want to know how to learn to really listen? Train yourself to “be there”. You have to actually be in that moment with someone like there is nothing else in the world going on. As if they are the only person around and nothing else matters. Work at it. The returns are enormous.
I wonder? If more people cared to do this maybe you would be heard.
