On Wednesdays I post a practical wisdom thought or suggestion on Marriage, Parenting, or Life. Listening is the most important communication skill! The cliché’ is true, “Talking is sharing BUT listening is caring.” When we listen closely to another person, our eyes and body language convey that we respect, care, and value that person so much we really want to hear and understand what they are saying.
However, to listen well takes time and effort. We need to set aside all distractions—cell phone, computer, tablet, television, etc.
Definitely, you help others feel important and special when you listen well by giving them your undivided attention with excellent eye contact.
TODAY: Ask your spouse, a family member, or a friend how you can improve at being a better listener.
