There is a reason between listening, and waiting for your turn to speak.” – Simon Sinek
It is a skill to be able to listen.
To not hear, but listen. Sincere listening.
Many hear words, with the intent to respond.
That is, while another is speaking, they are already formulating what they are going to say next. This isn’t a mortal sin – we all have found ourselves in those situations. Especially, during an argument. While in a passionate argument, it’s possible to be so focused on getting your point across, that their words of the other literally aren’t even heard. To deaf ears.
Possibly more common, is the hurried conversation.
Where we are “there”, in the conversation, but really… not there.
Our physical presence and mind can be in two very different places.
When we engage with someone today, whether it’s a friend, co-worker, family member, let’s listen. Not with the intent to give a response, but to fully appreciate and value their thoughts. It’s not about what’s going on later that day, or even what we’re doing to do after the conversation. Nothing else matters right now.
In the words of Brian McGill, “One of the sincerest forms of respect, is actually listening to what another has to say”.
Today, let’s focus on being in the moment. To listen, sincerely.
And listen, not with the intent to respond, but with the intent to understand.
