Listen and Silent
I always like to point out to students that the words “listen” and “silent” are anagrams (they have exactly the same letters). It’s a simple and elegant way to suggest to students that to truly listen requires that the mouth and mind be silent. To be effective listeners, we must first silence our own thoughts and filters in order to actively listen to what is being said—and not just the words, but to the entire message.
