Summary: Slow Down One of the most effective Tools a person can use, is the simplicity of slowing down. I call this the power of "Pause." It is when we pause that we can become conscious of what choices we have. Unless we pause we revert to our impulsive, reactive and automatic behaviors that always give us the same results. Unless we can slow it down and pause, we can not create change. Learn to slow down and the changes you want will speed up.
