Rule #6: Pause

rule 1

How do we slow the pace?

In today's up-tempo technologically driven society we rush about mercilessly. Physically, we drive ourselves to fatigue, traipsing cross-town and cross-country. Mentally, we drive ourselves to distraction, creating a neural web of roles and responsibility.

Increasingly, our desire to arrive at the next station stop is so powerful that we fail to notice the fruit stands and chestnut oaks that line our path.

This chapter teaches us how to pause.

And in Appendix B, Hugh Prather shares his simple two-step process for doing so.
