Two Ways to Listen
“You can listen to what they say, sure.
But you will be far more effective if you listen
to what people do.”
Seth Godin, America Author, Entrepreneur,
Marketer and Public Speaker
As I see it . . . . . . .
Two ways to listen
You can listen with your ears . . . . and hear what the person is saying.
You can listen with your eyes . . . . and watch their actions and what they do.
There is a big difference between what a person will say . . . . and what they do. A person can mask their words and tell you what they think you want to hear.
Or you can watch their actions and judge them on their actions and results of what they are actually doing.
When their actions miss the mark they can try to spin their words to cover for their lack of results. When you judge a person by their actions their words become as hollow are their actions . . . .
Listen closely to what a person is telling you and you will have an understanding of that person.
Listen to the actions of the person . . . . and evaluate the person by their actions . . . . and you will know the person for who they really are.
When you get a mixed message . . . . their actions speak volumes for who they really are as a person.
Two ways to listen . . . . Listen with your ears to what the person is telling you. Listen with your eyes and watch their actions and what they do . . . . and you will know and understand that person.
