Talk Less

listen

Today’s Challenge: Talk less.

I’m guilty. Sometimes I talk too much and don’t listen enough. Sometimes I’m so caught up in my thoughts and everything I need to say, that I stop listening. Sometimes I’m so sure I have the answers to the problems and I’m quick to share my (in my mind) brilliance.

But, there are times when I’m quiet and I listen. I slow down and I hear what other people say to me. And it’s amazing to actually listen to the people we care about. To really listen. Something else happens, too. We start to listen to body language and the tone of the voice and the emotion… and suddenly we’re closer to people around us… we’re connecting.
