    The world's most successful soda company first introduced this marketing slogan more than 80 years ago. If you ask me, they were way ahead of their time.

    More and more I'm recommending to clients and keynote audiences to take time out of their busy day to pause and refresh. Only I'm not referring to drinking carbonated beverages as a way to quench a thirsty body. I'm talking about taking time to pause and refresh their brains.

    These days, few things are more important for business leaders than pausing to think about what we're doing. Otherwise, we end up reacting to everything that comes our way rather than proactively focusing on what we need to do to get our organizations where they need to go.

    The faster the world goes - and it moves faster every day - the more we tend to shortcut the process of thinking. To keep up with this frenetic pace, we have trained ourselves to believe that we always need to be doing something. So we feel more comfortable running in any direction (often without our team in the same race) than we do pausing to make sure we're running in the right direction, with our team aligned and running with us.

    For example, we run into meetings unprepared, unsure of what is on the agenda or even what the meeting is supposed to accomplish. We forego feedback because "they will figure it out." We limit research or exploration into what others are doing, or have done, that we could leverage. The list of all the different ways we run with no real

    chieving our vision of winning. Yet we do it anyway because thinking is much more taxing than responding instinctually or with our other senses. To give rational consideration to ideas and plans requires more effort and willpower. Above all, it requires slowing down to actually use our brains versus giving in to intuition. This doesn't mean we avoid trusting our gut some of the time. But when every decision or action results from intuition rather than rational thinking, the quality of the results significantly declines.

    Running the Right Race

    The solution lies in an activity that the best athletes, musicians, and craftsmen (and women) do all the time - practice. The more technology enables us to move faster in most areas of our life, the more critical it becomes to practice thinking each and every day. Practice creates the habits and ways of working that allow us to slow down just enoug

    "do" to re-wire our brains, and that starts with practice.

    How can you carve out time each day, throughout the day, to conduct "practice drills"? These drills might only take 30 seconds to ponder "what if?" or imagine another perspective, or get clear on your limiting constraints so you can move beyond them.

    Try using a 3-minute timer to remind yourself to s
