Remember to listen

I'm going to give myself a challenge.

Be quiet.

It's that simple. Be quiet. Shut up and listen.

I need some practice in listening. In not just hearing but listening to what was said and taking the time to think about what was meant or intended.

Far too often I hear and then respond without enough pause. I jump and interupt when I know what the answer is or feel defensive (which only makes things worse).

If I shut up more maybe there will be a lot of things I haven't been hearing.

Maybe I'm missing everything.

Maybe I'll find all the answers.

Shhhhhh...listen.
