Julian Treasure: 5 ways to listen better

Treasure suggests that we need to improve our practice of listening by:

  1. Experiencing 3 minutes a day of silence
  2. In a noisy environment, count the number of different channels of sound you are hearing
  3. Savor a single, simple, mundane sound
  4. Practice changing your "listening position" (switch from passive to active, critical to empathic)
  5. Remember, R.A.S.A. (Receive, Appreciate, Summarize, Ask)
He states that by listening consciously we can live more fully.
