Ask any good musician and they’ll tell you the trick is the space between the notes.
That’s what we’re here today to talk about. Pauses.
We’re usually so focused on the words and the performance of them, that we forget to address intentional silences.
We can use them to catch a breath, add emphasis, and help pull a listener along.
They can also be used to overwhelm a listener or ruin your effectiveness because you paused for too long and left them wondering if maybe the audio dropped out.
Because less is more, that’s all I have to say for now. Enjoy the episode.
