I’m always telling my clients, don’t wait for your turn to talk, when someone is talking; listen instead. Then, they’ll really know how to respond. That’s just great advice from the teacher. However, this teacher often doesn’t follow his own advice. And, I need to put a piece of ducktape over my mouth.
When we’re not careful, it’s easy to jump to conclusions, that we know the directions others are going in conversations. And, we get in trouble and hurt our relationships. As I said, it’s happened to me, too.
So decide to listen, first, to get the whole story, before making your comments. And, you won’t have to keep buying so many rolls of ducktape.
