Before you say a word, pause

Ever get stuck in a conversation and you are at a lose of words?

Ever try to strike up a conversation and don’t know what to say?

PAUSE

  • Pay Attention to what’s actually being say or what you want to get across. Remove all judgments, biases and assessments
  • Acknowledge your own reactions, judgments and interpretations
  • Understand the other possible reactions and interpretations that may be possible
  • Search for the most empowering and productive way to deal with the conversation or situation
  • Execute your action plan

Even though this is a very long list, it takes just a couple of seconds to go through this process.

Next time you view yourself in an opportunity that you have not experienced before, just remember to take a deep breath ans “pause.”
