A Powerful Lesson . . .From Your Remote!

by Paul Castain on April 26, 2012

Of all the places for us to get a lesson . . . Our remote?

Yep and I thought I’d change things up and offer you a valuable lesson via a quick, 2 minute video I shot . . . especially for you. Well sort of, especially for you and anyone who actually takes the 2 minutes to slow down for a quick wake up call.

During the video I talk about a need for “pause”. Once you view the video it will be . . .

Your turn . . . Please give us an example of how you plan to, or are already utilizing this concept!

    Thanks Paul and have a nice weekend — hit the pause . . .
    I pause in the morning for an hour of me-time before anyone else is up–before getting ready for work.  Just enjoy the quiet and a warm cup of coffee–

    Very timely post, Paul. Wife out of town so I’ve spent 3 out of 4 nights working not just overtime, but double time. Trouble is, that’s not much different from when she’s in town. I get a lot of satisfaction from work but for me, this was a great reminder that it’s not good enough to be a great provider. I’ve gotta pause long enough time w/the actually providing for.

    I thought for sure the article was going to be about the Mute button … How we need to shut up and listen to the prospect’s needs and concerns … But your Pause article was quite refreshing.

    This could not be more true…I am learning to take more me time. Thanks Paul !!

    Great video :)   Every lunchtime I am in my home office I go for a walk for 30 mins round the local countryside.  It definitely hits pause, but sometimes it turns into great strategic thinking time as well.

    Now that’s what I call slowing down Peter!

    Wishing you a nice, slow weekend!

    Thanks!

    I love both the slowing down and the strategic thinking time aspect of this Matthew.

    I get some of my best ideas this way!

    BTW I’m about to shoot a video for my presentation webinar . . . thanks to your fantastic suggestion the other day!

    Thanks!

    I like your idea too. The mute button is really important and I appreciate you reminding me of that!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    Thank you Paul.  See quote I just read, ““Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least.”

    Thank you Anita . . . That’s a great quote!

    My “pause” is very similar to yours, Debbie. For years, every morning, 7 days a week, my husband and I share a cup of coffee before anyone else is up and use the time to stay connected, and give belly-rubs to our doggies. There are definitely days I’d rather roll over and get an additional 1/2 hour sleep — but the benefit is so worth that 5am wake up call.

    This is a great way to start the day . . . getting what’s most important in the bank first.

    Bravo Lynda!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    The pause that refreshes! What a refreshing idea. Reminds me of a program from a few years ago – Joan of Arcadia on “Re-creation.” All creative minds know this . . . but it’s good to be reminded! Thanks!
