Disclaimer: I have been doing yoga for the past 3 years and have been meditating daily for the past 10 years.
I know, I know, I have heard it before from my Executives, Entrepreneur, and Business clients. “My time is in such demand I cannot begin to comprehend sitting still for 30 minutes doing nothing!” It may feel like you are doing nothing, however great things are happening on your behalf!
Here are my top responses to these concerns.
- Do not underestimate the “power of slow.” Focused energy comes naturally from being before doing, which in turn creates better performance when you go back to doing.
- Creating space between demands, allows us to make fewer mistakes. When we are jumping from task to task the quality of effort suffers which perpetuates more work, and thus, more stress.
- The idea that this is a new concept is silly. Meditation has been practiced since prehistoric times. In an increasingly busy world, it is more important than ever before to consider these tools to increase the quality in our life and business.
