Am I alone in this?
Everybody wants to be heard; Nobody seems to be Listening!
Have you ever felt like you were not given a chance to speak?
How often have you tried to raise your voice to get a chance to be heard?
Have you participated in an argument where you had so much to say but every other person was talking?
Have you ever felt like your time is being wasted when someone is talking to you, especially because you should be the one talking?
Have there been times when everybody is talking and it seems that nobody is listening to you?
I may not be sure of what your experience has been but I have often wondered why people rarely listen.
I have seen heated arguments where nobody seems to be listening to the other(s).
Could that be the simple reason for chaos?
Is that why it is difficult to arrive at decisions while working with people?
Shouldn’t we make deliberate effort to listen?
Wouldn’t it be right to stop blaming others and to start listening?
I have identified faults in cars simply by listening.
I have understood the reason for some differences simply by listening.
While growing, it was common to hear people say; “when everybody is talking; nobody is talking”.
How else can we identify our problems if we don’t listen to each other.
From where else can we get solutions if we keep screaming out our lungs at people who are screaming too?
Maybe we should we should only talk when it’s important so that we can listen more.
Maybe by listening we’ll discover that action speaks louder than voice.
Maybe our discovery will motivate us to take action.
Won’t more action in the right direction be the true solution?
Just thinking out loud.
Everybody wants to be heard; Nobody seems to be listening.
