Listen to understand not to reply. 🤯
It’s not a mind blowing truth.
But the way some companies treat customers and employees it would be information to shatter their worldview.
Silence is something dearly missed in regular routine.
Here are a few tips to improve your ability to listen and limit ‘noise’
🔶Set aside one day of the week to rest.
Sunday is a great day to pause from work.
Go to church or use it for family time.
🔷 Take micro-breaks during the work day
Strategic 2-3 minute breaks to get water or step away from a stressful situation will do wonders for your perspective.
🔶 Be intentional with regular prayer or meditation
My family started praying one decade of the Rosary a night.
It only takes 5-7 minutes but I find myself much calmer (and who doesn’t want to have more peace before going to sleep).
Silent time leads to an improved ability to listen.
