Live Inspired Vlog #109: Use ‘Them’ In Proportion

“Most people do not listen with intent to understand. Most people listen with intent to reply.”- Stephen R. Covey

I believe the quote above is true of many people, but one person in my life who I believe listened with an intent to understand was my physician, Dr. Vachte Ayvazian.

In today’s #LiveInspired vlog, I share some advice that Dr. Ayvazian used to give the young residents about becoming better listeners. As you head into the classroom, office, factory, or carpool line, may his words remind you to listen to others not with an intent to reply, but with an intent to understand them.

Today is your day. Live Inspired.
