Do you find yourself distracted and ill-focused by the dizzying pace of modern business (busyness)? Worrying about the future? Re-processing the past? Mindfulness is an ancient methodology for focusing awareness and attention to the present and to the task at hand. Not judging or rejecting what is happening. Not problem-solving or trying to remove or change negative thoughts. (More below on the practice.) We receive a lot of training on how to develop and use our minds, but we get very little training in how to step out of the mental chatter. Learning how to get out of your mind and into your life, when you need to, is an essential skill in the modern world. Leaders must work to create a more mindful business, fresh, vibrant and creative.
The result can be creative energy, clear-headedness, and appreciative joy – by seeing things freshly, with clarity, and in a calm state of mind. Mindfulness is happiness. If you are not appreciating the present moment, you are not fully alive.
