“There is a difference between listening, and waiting for your turn to speak.” – Simon Sinek
It is a skill to be able to listen.
Not to “hear”, but to listen. Sincere listening.
Most, as they hear words from another, are already formulating what they are going to say in response. It’s very obvious in an argument. While in a heated conversation, it’s possible to have individuals so focused on getting their point across, that the words of the other literally can’t be processed. They fall 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 talk 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 purely appreciate and value their thoughts. In the words of Brian McGill, “One of the sincerest forms of respect, is actually listening to what another has to say”.
Listen sincerely, truly present in the moment.
And listen, not with the intent to respond, but with the intent to understand.
