740. Good Listening Starts With "L"

Today I went to a three-hour seminar about Listening.  The speaker was fantastic.  I got a lot out of it, and in fact I wanted to share some of his effective listening strategies with you to try. 

But I forgot what he said.

  5. My old boss sent me to a seminar to learn "how to be a better communicator". The only thing I remember from it was her first line, "I'm sure you would all agree that the people who sent you here are the ones that SHOULD be here." The entire room was in agreement. The most boring 8 hours of my life.

  6. LMAO!
    Listening isn't my problem. At my age, retaining is.

  7. I like how you are confusing everybody being a day ahead!

    "Like" is my L-word.

    I also "love" how you rock my socks off with these amazing posts!

    1. tracie, I am not ahead, everyone else is just really far behind. On April 26, I will be finished with the whole a to z-- ha! (Which reminds me, when I was a competitive swimmer in high school, I looked up during a race to notice that the other swimmers--ALL-- had "lapped" me, meaning they were a full lap ahead. I was despondent, but did my best. I was such a dummy, that I had actually lapped all of THEM, and I won the race! ha!)

  8. Yeah, well I'm so far ahead I'm actually working on NEXT year.
    No, not really. I haveno idea what I'm posting tomorrow. And, asusual, I'm sorry I didn't think of your post first.

  10. "Lol" starts with L. It's what I'm doing right now. Because it doesn't seem like you actually learned anything from that listening seminar :))

When you write a comment, it makes me feel like I won the lottery or at the very least like I ate an ice-cream sundae. (This has nothing to do with the fact that I did just eat an ice-cream sundae.)
