Laurie Curtis, Coach: I set my phone each day to play a beautiful tone at noon to remind me to practice. The mindful pause brings forth my Leadership and Judgment/critical thinking strengths, helping me to bridge the gap between the vague knowing that something should be acted upon and the action I need to take to use my strengths. I then act with a newfound confidence, and without delay.
Ruby Nadler, research scientist, leadership coach: Oftentimes, Gratitude emerges in my mindful pauses. This catalyzes me to be immediately aware of what I have to be thankful for in that moment and throughout the rest of my day.
