Mastering this one thing will make you a better listener.
Whenever I had a conversation with my former boss Harry, he closed his laptop and put his phone in a drawer.
Harry didn’t tell you he was going to listen. He showed you.
No checking notifications.
No glancing at his computer screen.
Harry made you feel like you were the only person in the room.
Your monkey mind is wired to flip through channels.
“What am I going to have for dinner?”
“I need to get to the gym.”
“Should I get a haircut this week?”
What’s the one thing?
Don’t change the channel.
Simple but not easy.
