Matt finds himself interrupting others and finishing their sentences. He asks, "How can I change this habit? I don't want to appear rude."
Many times when we find ourselves interrupting others, we are doing so because we are engaged in the discussion. However, as Matt points out, it can be perceived as rude.
When in a meeting, rather than interrupting with your thoughts, consider taking notes when someone is talking. This will help keep you focused on the message rather than talking to yourself and to allow the person to complete his or her thoughts. When they are done talking, ask if you can review your notes with them.
