Listen--Really Listen--To One Person for One Day

Choose one person you could relate to better. Commit to listening to them--not just hearing them--for one day. After each meeting, ask yourself: Did I really make an effort to go beyond superficialities? Did I observe verbal (words), vocal (intonation), and visual (body language) clues? Did I note what was not being said as well as what was said?

Once you've gotten into this habit of nudging yourself to listen better, extend this exercise to successive days, then to other acquaintances as well.

Listening well is a gift you can give to others. It'll cost you nothing, but it may be invaluable to them.
