The word “listen” contains the same letters as the word “silent.”

When you’re listening to someone, are you silent? Or, are you instead already formulating a response? If you are, can you say that you really are listening?

Do you ever wonder if the person to whom you are listening knows which of the above you are doing?

I cannot claim that I am always silent when I’m listening. I do, however, know when I have failed.
