Pause Now

Consider Yourself


Try to consider the art of the pause. It is a mandatory visit for all who are in constant multi-task mode, rushing nowhere, anticipating chaos, and accomplishing less than their abilities might allow.


When I drive, I often…

When I meet with my coworkers to discuss work, I often…

When shopping, I often…

When having dinner with my family, I often…

When planning my days, I often…

Where do you fit in the chart?

A rational & reasonable person who knows where it’s going & how to get there successfully.
A somewhat reasonable, yet irrational person afraid of appearing inadequate to its peers, uncertain of where it’s going & how to get there successfully.
A person of average intellect who thinks little about where it’s going, has been encapsulated by circumstances into a lifestyle it respects little & cares less about.
An innocent bystander in life going nowhere, angry that things have not worked out in its favor, even though many aspects of its life are reasonably good. It is unsure why, but is certain it must dislike & take revenge upon others at all times.
An angry person, totally out of control, irrational, & unreasonable who has no self-respect, no comprehension of life’s positive possibilites & its good fortune. It operates strictly to inflict damage upon its employer, neighbors, & coworkers.
–  I’m fairly OK considering today’s chaotic, angry, hateful culture.
–  I’m just barely hanging in & surviving.
–  I’m so lost I don’t know what found means.
–  I’m going to find myself when I’m ready & not before.
–  I want your & everyone’s blood.
