How To Focus On What Someone Is Saying

| By Mike Michalowicz (Google+)

Have you ever noticed that when someone else is talking that you struggle to listen. And what if you are in a crowded room, and other people are texting and talking and the such? How do you stay focused?

The most simple way, believe it or not, is to use imagery.  Picture a telephone, the old school type with a cord, held up to your ear with a long cord running directly from you to the speaker.  Picture the phone connect directly to a microphone next to their mouth.  Envision having the perfect connection.

The imagery brings focus. And focus ensures you catch every single word they are saying.
