Day 12: 100 Days
Something I'm working hard on is listening before I speak. Seeking to understand before being understood. This is much more difficult that it sounds. When I am having a conversation I am often quick to think through where the conversation is going and formulate my response before I've even really taken the time really listen. I've also been on the receiving end of this. Leaving the conversation with a deep lack of connection because the person I was speaking with wasn't really listening. I wonder how different the world would look if everyone practiced this. To listen first, to ask questions seeking first to understand, and then formulating a thoughtful and kind response .... without the need to be understood.
