We recently had the opportunity to interview Rob and learned more about how we might “slow down so we can speed up.” Rob also shares his experience of how we can “practice the pause” in all manners and relationships, how to work with the moment between stimulus and response, and how it can affect us and those around us, in all areas of our lives.
