Listening

Have you ever been talking to somebody and just know that they are not listening to a word you are saying? Better yet, how often have you talked with somebody and their listening skills were remarkable? Even better, how well do you listen?

Listening is not easy for me. It is something I have to work on daily. I tend to be processing what I am going to say rather than hearing what is being said to me. I have to consciously stop the bullshit factory from churning and enably my mind to process what somebody is telling me. It gets easier the more I do it. I should probably do it more often. But hey. life is a journey, I'll have it all figured out by the time its over.

Here's a story at EMS World about the good things that happen when I actually do listen, thanks for reading.
