In general, how can I become a better listener?
My thoughts (read: ego?) get in the way a lot, fearful of having them leave my head before the other person finishes. So I often blurt. Or focus on the thought to let them finish, but then tune them out.
I want to be a better listener—even in spite of (and not limited to the aforementioned details)—how can I do it?!
Some tips please :)
