A new year to listen
With a new year and new opportunities we have plenty of time to form new habits. Listening is a skill that everyone can benefit from, myself included.
During this new year, try the following;
Approach each new conversation as an opportunity to really understand what someone is
Be curious about how others perceive the world.
Repeat back to the person speaking the general idea of what they are saying
to let them know you heard them.
You might just find that by taking time to just breathe and listen, you will allow yourself to process your thoughts more clearly and establish better relationships with others.
Happy listening in 2019. Let me know your thoughts and progress. I love to listen!
