How to Slow Down and Listen

Friday Jan 26th, 2018


Do you ever find your mind wandering when someone is talking to you?  No, you’re not abnormal and you don’t have attention deficit disorder.

Most people speak at an average rate of about 120 words per minute, but most people can listen about four times faster. So, your mind fills in the gap by thinking about other things.

Be aware of this and try to slow down your listening. Work on staying focused so you can really comprehend what the speaker is saying.
