Whenever one utters the word ‘communication’, we immediately think about ‘speaking’, ‘listening’, ‘writing’ and ‘giving feedback’ etc.
But, are we missing out an important aspect of communication?
What about ‘taking a pause’?
Taking a pause is something very important but also something that is seldom taught. I call it a rare art.
Take a pause before you speak anything. You’ll be surer of what you want to say. Take a pause before you decide to lend your ears to someone’s feelings. Listening takes a lot of patience. Take a pause before you decide to write anything. Your words will be clearer and precise. Take a pause. Breathe. Take a pause especially before giving a feedback. What may be important to you may not be relevant to others.
Take a pause.
