Breathe. Let it sink.

by aishyza

When someone asks me a vague question, like “Tell me more about yourself”.

It’s so tempting to just burst out with a drama-story you tell anyone on the street.

What I thought would have worked better is to

  1. Breathe.
  2. Let it sink and process why the person is asking this question, then answer.
  3. Or clarify where the curiosity is coming from.

Now that’s what I call the art of listening.
