This not only affect your job, but your health, relationships with loved ones, and fulfillment in life.
Mindfulness expert Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn
In today's world multitasking is expected and valued especially at executive level. While mega-multitasking becomes a badge of honor. We often confuse efficiency with effectiveness. Research shows that the ability to stay intensely focused declines over time. Therefore we train our minds not to focus on what is going on.
Devoting greater mindshare to one aspect of our work or life may leave less room available for others.
Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee Chapter 6
Mindfulness is not something we are born with, nor is it a technique; it is a way of being.
It requires connection with other people and developing emotional intelligence.
It is paying attention on purpose in the present moment non-judgmental as if your life depended on it.
We can become a shadow of what we once were, playing roles rather than living authentically simply by treating life's big decisions as if they are checklists of to-dos
