“When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new” DALI LAMA
Ever have an acquaintance or a friend talk too much? It seems they like to hear themselves talk and expound on things they absolutely have no idea of. You start to tune them out and not listen. But sometimes, we tune out altogether and stop listening to just about everyone. Not truly listening as we are busy with our agenda of the day and just nod or may even answer but have no clue what the discussion was about later.
Part of truly listening is being in the moment and giving undivided attention to the situation. We may learn something along the way, maybe about the other person or even about ourselves. Have a beautiful day and practice Listening!
