Posting for Jeff because he can't.
Do you ever find yourself speaking up too soon?
Yes, I do.
If so, how can you clear your mind to fully listen?
I would try to hold back what i want to say , as you know, maybe there’s something very important he is gonna say or even something that might cover what i want to say.
How can you channel your excitement into listening and wait for the proper opportunity to share?
I try to concentrate on what he is saying and pay attention to them
What else can you do to prepare for conversations with others?
I can try and think about what i want to say and maybe read up about the topic more about what i want to share
Can we ask them up front what they are looking for?
Maybe not as we might disrupt their flow of thoughts and make them forget what they want to say.
How does it make you feel to be cut off in the middle of your thoughts?
It is kind of irritating as i am trying to think of something and might even forgot about it completely if the person interrupts me.
