ETIQUETTE TIP OF THE DAY:
The definition of "Listening" is: "Someone who clears his head and has no planned response until the speaker finishes speaking."
The true meaning of listening is not just pausing and waiting for the other person to finish as you plan your response. It is clearing your mind and having nothing to say at all until after the other person finishes speaking, then you quickly plan and execute your response.
Listening attentively is always harder than spewing opinions.
