From A Weak to Confident Communicator - 30 Day Challenge

Day 30 Challenge: Stop thinking about what to say next

Do you find yourself often saying, “Sorry I did not catch that?” If you do, you must know that you do not pay enough attention to what the other person is saying. You worry about what you should say next than listen to what the other person has to say.

By default, you worry more about the quality of our reply. So when a person is voicing his thoughts, you think of the perfect reply.

Every time you have a conversation, remind yourself to prevent your mind from drafting a response. You will find yourself drifting into thinking mode quite often when you begin. Over time, you will start thinking of a reply lesser.

Today, when someone talks to you, you must listen with full attention. Only after the person has finished talking do you start thinking of a reply. You can pause for a moment or two to gather your thoughts.

This is the final task in the challenge. Make no mistake, you won't be able to master listening in a day. You will take far longer than that. As simple as the tip sounds, it is the most powerful lesson on transforming into a better communicator.
