Listening requires focus and engagement. What I learned recently is termed the “100% Rule”. You either do or you don’t. You can’t afford not to. Effective listening saves times and increases efficiencies in all types of relationships, personal or professional. The other thing, it’s ok to say no if it’s not the right time or if you can’t give 100%; because it’s that important. Timing is everything. Speak your truth with clarity and be upfront. Listening is a skill that also requires questions, or intelligent interruptions. If you’re not seeking to understand by asking questions, you are not truly listening. Focus your ears and train you mouth. ;) Awareness of focus and engagement to truly listen is an art. Make a choice to be your best. To your health and balance...
