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?
