Spend more time listening instead of trying to place your words in the conversation.
Listening doesn’t mean you agree. It’s an act of respect.
“One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.”
- Bryant H. McGill
If you prepare what you are about to say as the other is speaking, you’re not really listening.
Be a good listener, you’ll be amaze at all you can take and use in what you get.
