Some people are good listeners. Their relationships reflect it. Other people think they’re good listeners but don’t check to confirm if that’s actually true. And some people know they’re not good listeners and don’t really try to get better.
Here’s how you can find out if you’re a good listener.
Tell the other person what you understood from what they said. If they agree with you, you listened well. If not, you had a breakdown in your listening. It’s up to you if you’re interested in correcting it.
Discipline is the shortcut. Do the work.
