I always cringe when I hear myself talking on a recorded audio/video file.
The sound simply is familiar and unfamiliar at the same time. The scientific explanation is that whenever we talk, we always hear two types of sounds together through the vibration inside our head and the noise that goes through our ears.
When it comes to ideas or plans, listening to yourself through the analysis of others always have benefits. When I am the sole conjurer of a plan, I almost always seem to think it’s the perfect plan. However, many times I am mistaken.
The benefit of having people you trust to listen to your ideas is to have a soundboard to make sure you sound right. It’s amazing how my plans actually sound almost ludicrous when it bounces back to me off of someone.
Just recently, I honestly believes my plan would be the best recourse in a situation. After explaining to people I trust, the sound immediately came back to me and it wasn’t close to good. It was almost destructive.
Lesson learned: planning something big? Listen to it through others first.
