How much of the time do we really spend listening, and how much of the time(while the other person is still making thier point/statement) do we spend getting our brilliant retort ready to pounce?  I’m as guilty as the next, and I’d say it’s at best half.  And in a heated situation or even worse, a political discussion, it’s hardly even the first ten percent.

“If we would just listen to what the other has to say.”

 It seems so trite, but more and more I’ve come to see the truth in that statement.  It seems so simple, but I know it’s much more difficult to do it as opposed to saying it.

 I’m sorry, what were you takling about?
