Habit of Silence

One challenging habit for leaders is spending 21 minutes every day in silence for 21 days. It’s challenging for at least two reasons.

1) Silence makes us uncomfortable. Try spending 30 seconds in silence before responding someone. Observe how uncomfortable they become waiting.

2) Our lives are filled with noise. We often cannot sleep or drive anywhere without some sort of background noise.

Our minds never rest. The idea of sitting in silence without praying, thinking about work, or a hundred other thoughts is not normal.

However, developing a habit of silence can improve our attitude toward others, situations, and our own spiritual growth.
