Just because I taught communication courses and teach others to listen deeply, I used to think that I am very good listener. There were a few occasionswhen we wife or son or daughter caught me doing something else because I thought I knew what they were saying. They never let me live it down and now I pay extra attention to what they say. Still when I am impatient, I try to complete their sentences and get into trouble whenever I do that. Autopilot listening is really easy. Deep and in the moment listening is always a choice that I have to make every single time -- but it is worth it!
