How to be Mindful
Notice new things
Look at familiar things from a different perspective
Ellen Langer: Mindful vs. Mindless
When you are "not there" you are "not there" to know that you are "not there" (and we are "not there" much of the time)
credit card example, store clerk asked customer to sign credit card, then to sign credit card slip, then compared signatures- had to be the same, mindlessly following protocol
Example of Mindlessness
"Not there" + social media = potentially negative/embarrassing consequences
Mindful vs. Mindless
Peer 1: they are so cool
Peer 2: they look ridiculous
Peer 3: why wasn't I included at that party?
Parent 1: that's my kid, so proud and glad he's having fun
Parent 2: I'm calling the school tomorrow
Employer 1: horrible choices, no discretion, will never work here
Employer 2: I know him, that's Sam's son, I can overlook it...
Peer 1: they look smart
Peer 2: they look like geeks
Peer 3: why wasn't I included in that study group?
Parent 1: that's my kid, so proud, glad he's working hard
Parent 2: why is he wasting time at a nursing home?
Employer: looks like he is collaborating, studying, invested in community service, bring him in for an interview
