Day 323…Play back what you heard


What did you say?

I heard what you said, but what did you say?

Let me break it down for you:

listen – 108

hear – 79

ears – 17

That is the number of times those words are in the BBTL book.

This morning I got to spend time with the band (minus two who we missed!), and I got to do what I love doing with them – listen. I will repeat this about the band, they are ‘lethal listeners’.  I am learning to listen by listening. It does not come naturally for most of us (especially me).

The next time you are in a conversation, and you want to show you care about the person you are talking to – tell them what you heard them say. (One can even do this at home. Go figure.)

“Play back what you heard” is freakin magic when one realizes you are trying to avoid confusion, not catch the confused.
