I am sure you are familiar with mindfulness. It is about being in the present moment without judging. It is about not being pulled in many directions by random thoughts. Mindful eating, driving & meditation. How about mindful listening. This would be a very useful habit to develop. Start small. Ask someone for their opinion on any topic and listen 100%. If your mind wanders, gently nudge it back to listening. Ask questions that help the person explain themselves. Paraphrase accurately without adding your own thoughts. Be curious rather than build a case to refute their opinion. If asked to reply, start slowly or simply continue listening. ” Before I tell you my thoughts I have one more question for you…”
You only learn when listening to yourself or others.
