4. Practice Thinking about Others...

Practice Thinking about Others...

This one is difficult.

We're so used to thinking about what we have to do later, of where we have to be, or what we're going to eat for lunch tomorrow that we sometimes forget to think of others.2

Try to get in the habit of thinking about if your cousin is enjoying her trip or Aruba or how your mom's stew turned out.

That way, when she gets back, you'll be primed to sit and listen, instead of yammering about your week at the office.

Try starting your thoughts with something besides "I" or "Me".

Once you get in the mindset and habit of thinking of others, you'll be more likely to keep your mouth shut during conversation and listen to what your friends and family have to say.

Remember the Purpose of the Conversation...
