Listen >> analyse >> think >> feedback
Listen >> no feedback
The last usually occurred either when you are not paying attention or you have nothing to say. You have nothing to say maybe because you have no idea of what you have listen or you just don’t care either to the person or the subject.
The first and second are not much different. Except that you may sometimes regret or don’t like your feedback. You may either let it go or make another feedback. But sometimes it’s made no different. Like the saying “terlajak perahu boleh diundur, terlajak kata buruk padahnya…”
It’s better to analyse and think of the subject and your feedback before shooting it out. Just a quick analyzing and thinking will do. You don’t want the other person waiting so long just to have your answer. Lol… Sometimes we will be judged by our words. Especially during interview, first acquaintance and first date.
I know it’s easier said than done but practicing will help. I’m now. To listen, analyzing, thinking and answering.
