Seek first to understand and then to be understood

Most people engage in conversation to be heard, rather than to understand.

Often, instead of really hearing what someone else is telling us, we spend our "listening time” thinking about our reply.

In doing so, we place our ideals and philosophies on others, without truly hearing them.

As a consequence, we go through life missing out on valuable insights.

How you can apply it

Many property investors suffer from confirmation bias which is the tendency, to begin with an answer and then search for evidence to support the preconceived outcome.

The lesson here is to be skeptical of your preconceptions and try to disprove your own theories rather than continually defending them.
