    One thought on “The Power of Pause: Becoming More by Doing Less”

    1. This book needs to be taken in small bites and with time. Learning to chill is sort of like wine- you need to stop and just ferment in the moment- then continue on the new path incorporating what your are learning.

    2. a lot of gentle easing wisdom within recommended when you need to remember what life is truly suppose to be like

    3. I found this book among the new arrivals at the public library, and I've dubbed it my new "gift book" to anyone in my life who unwittingly assumes too many to do's and shoulda's. It's a reminder that silence is more than golden -- it is holy (in the spiritual sense, not purely religious way). It will challenge you to become more by being less. Ooh, that makes you cringe just as the site of those words, eh? Whether you're Christian, Jewish (or neither), you'll like the analogy of seeking rest and [...]

    4. #91-2010I really liked this when I read it the first time (my review is here) and now the book club is reading it. Nothing better than rereading something that helped change your life my husband and I began keeping Sundays as a day of rest especially when we now need a little jolt as we have somewhat slipped out of the habit.Now rereading for the Elements of Faith bookclub meeting. AND enjoying it as much as I did the first time.

    5. I found the format of this book a little difficult. It is laid out in 52 segments, suitable to read one per week and following the seasons of a year. There are also assignments for you to do in each segment. I had it on loan from the library, do needed to read it in a few days. It was a worthwhile quick read, and emphasizes different ways to slow down, to say no to some things and yes to the ones you really want to do. But it was a little lighter than I had expected.

    6. In the fast-changing world, people are crazily rushing for materialistic purposes & leaving behind true happiness disguised in simple forms (e.g play with kids, admire nature, DIY). Sometimes, a pause in certain moments of life can turn around our messy world, transforming it into a peaceful place that nurtures our soul n compassion. Simple tips are presented in ordinary stories in an easy-to-read writing. Highly recommended for busy guys!

    7. This is a truly excellent contemplative accessible book with brief chapter essays convincing the reader to slow down and pay attention to life. Each essay is beautifully written, many with a short story format. All of the chapters are situations we can all relate to. The writing is warm and had the effect of a little "poke" at the end of each essay, a reminder on how to act on what you just read. Can be read in bits and pieces.

    8. I loved this book. Many of my summer mornings began with reading a couple chapters of this and drinking a cup of coffee. It has a lot of spiritual wisdom. It reminded me to slow down, live life in the here & now, & see God in the ordinariness of everyday living.

    9. I had to read this book for work as part of professional development. While some of it seemed a little too Chicken Soup for me, some passages were very powerful and contrite. I even marked them to go back to.

    10. It was okay. The "chapters" are two, maybe three, pages and useful but not particularly creative. I just didn't couldn't get into a habit of reading each morning when it would be most useful.

    11. I'm reading this as part of my morning prayer. It'll take a long time.It's a great reminder of taking time, enjoying life, being grateful, finding out what's really important.

    12. The book is made up of many small segments with activities, including a few accessible online. I found some more relatable than others.

    13. Great, thought provoking book! Short chapters, easy to read. If you are overwhelmed, this is a good book to help you.

    14. Quick, easy read. Reiterates what we already know - we are all trying to do too much all of the time. Good stories and quotes.

    15. Great stories for our stressed out nation - but overall, it's not enough meat for my taste and he's a little too self-deprecating for me. Good resource, however, for inspirational speeches.

    16. Such a relevent book for our times of 'want it yesterday' mentality. Great stories of appreciation of being present and the rewards of BEing so!
