Observe your thoughts and reactions.
Listen to yourself, when you talk to yourself and when you talk to others.
Observe other people’s reaction, expressions and body language when they are speaking to you or others.
Observe and listen to yourself and others when angry and mad, when happy and sad.
Through observation and listening, one may get an understanding of back stories and motivations. About one’s own actions and reactions. You may find out what is really driving your behaviour or boiling in the other person’s head.
Combine the power of observing and listening and use it as a tool to learn more about yourselves and others.
