Life Lessons: Speaking and Listening

Never speak without listening.

I admit to struggling with the concept of listening to understand and not respond.

So often I start a conversation with a point I want to make – jumping ahead because the other person is talking too long and I’m anxious to get to the next item on my to-do list.

But when I stop – really stop and listen, I learn something.  Even if it’s just to be more patient.
