All of us encounter moments when we need to muster the courage to calmly sit down and “listen” to the other person’s perspective though we may not feel like doing so- sit down and listen rather than jump and react before listening.
All of us also encounter moments when we need to muster courage to rise up and speak/express our perspective calmly and respectfully.
So let’s keep a score card for a month! A score card for ourselves of times we tried to sit down and listen even if we did not feel like doing so and the times we tried to speak up respectfully and calmly when it was the wise thing to do.
At the end of the day, review your performance…
& Give yourself a brownie point (✔) if you tried to do this
“For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.” Aristotle
