1. When did you last stop to look around you? On a recent hike through the Spanish mountains, the author realized that his friends kept falling behind him as they stopped to appreciate the view. He had been striding ahead, alone. Why? Because he had been thinking of the walk as something he needed to achieve rather than a pleasant afternoon to be savored.

Machines are designed to work as fast and efficiently as possible. Whether they’re making cars or analyzing data, machines are built for repetitive tasks and a constant working pace. But although machines are designed to function like this, people definitely aren’t. Even so, we are expected to imitate their ruthless efficiency. We talk admiringly, for example, of our coworker who is “always on.” In a world of email and instant messaging, we demand ever-faster responses from each other. And often it’s the speed of the response we value, rather than its quality.

A musician playing the flute, for example, takes short pauses as she plays in order to breathe. She then blows air into her flute. Without pauses, the music itself wouldn’t be possible.

Situations like these also highlight an important difference between humans and machines. A paused machine simply stops. A human being, on the other hand, starts doing something else – taking a breath, for instance, or investing her attention somewhere new. She doesn’t stop – she starts anew.

This is where a tricky aspect of pauses can come in handy. By definition, pauses are productive time, and that’s true even when they aren’t perceived as such! For example, when working as a facilitator, the author has found that silence makes people uncomfortable – so much so that they can’t help filling it. When he wants someone to open up to him, he’ll simply say, “So…?” By leaving this half-question hanging in the air he creates a pause, one that the other person will eventually break by voicing what’s really on her mind. So if you’d like to deepen your relationships, try talking less and pausing more.
