Can You Hear Me Now?
Have you ever been guilty of texting or checking your phone during a conversation? I have! Have you ever been guilty of looking around the room at distractions vs making eye contact? I have! What about when the other person is talking, are you actually listening or already formulating your next response? I definitely have! John Maxwell says, “a deaf ear is evidence of a closed mind”. It is impossible to create connecting relationships when we are not really listening or when we are doing all the talking! I challenge you today, to focus more on being an active listener. You might be surprised by what you can learn from others when you take the time to listen more and speak less.
