Have you ever heard the quote, “Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply”?
Do you think we have a listening problem in our society?
I do. I think we have a listening problem – with each other, with our communities, with our world.
Steve R. Covey wrote about that, often, in his book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. He explained that we have a need to be understood, but we reply first instead of understanding! We need to learn to listen, to understand. And, we need to lead by example.
I invite you to practice with me. Join me in 30 Days of Listening. I will gift you the experience of being listened to. You can talk to me about what’s on your heart, and from that, we will both be more connected to each other, to our family and friends, and more prepared to share that with our world.
Sign up today! I am looking to fill up December with listening!
