On average we speak at 225 words per minute. We are capable of hearing 500 words a minute. 

I wonder, if we stop trying to make up the difference when people are talking to us, wouldn’t we become better listeners?

The result of  being more engaged as a listener is that you will become a sought after conversationalist. 

Your friends and family and co-workers…..even strangers, will appreciate the effort and you might even learn something. Are you listening?
