Learning to Listen Fast

It occurred to me yesterday when I had to play back part of a voice mail message several times in order to write down the phone number that I don’t listen very fast.     The person said the numbers very fast (which is a huge pet peeve of mine , but that’s beside the point here.)
I guess if I started doing shorthand my listening would have to speed up.   Any thoughts on that?

  1. And numbers are different then words.  And since they're usually written out in full, it's harder to write them fast.  And of course the sentense Andrew mentioned.  After some practice you'll be able to listen to more and more and catch up or take that down. Debbi
