“Respond – don’t react. Listen- don’t talk. Think- don’t assume.”
Listening is a trait which is of paramount importance if you want to clearly understand and assimilate the context of the conversation. Whenever someone is speaking try to listen to them rather than framing your own counter-replies. Pay some attention and it’ll let you understand the content better and take the conversation in the right direction which is fruitful. If you listen more it’ll increase your knowledge and your critical thinking. Listening will not make you say something completely random and not make you look like a fool. The other people will acknowledge your patient listening and will react the same way when you speak. This will lead to a deeper emotional bond and will let you understand each other more effectively thus, opening a door of success in life.
