Mark Nepo: How to Stay Present in a World of Distractions - Super Soul Sunday - OWN

Annette Schmeling's curator insight, November 18, 2013 12:46 PM

Mindless habits sap our energy, steal our time and clutter our life at home & work. It is the never-ending obsession with doing or being good enough. Mark Nepo and Oprah highlight, in the video clip, the limitations of the listening to the constant chatter of the inner critic, our distractions and busyness. Nepo stresses the need to develop the discipline and personal practice of presence.

 

Being fully present in the here and now creates greater peace, power and harmony. Presence and making genuine, loving contact is not always safe or easy. There is always a risk involved in trying to make a real connection. Being aware of our presence and making small adjustments in our mindless habits will help our lives flow more harmoniously according to our own nature and natural rhythms.

As dear friend Annette Schmeling shares:


"Mindless habits sap our energy, steal our time and clutter our life at home & work. It is the never-ending obsession with doing or being good enough. Mark Nepo and Oprah highlight, in the video clip, the limitations of the listening to the constant chatter of the inner critic, our distractions and busyness.

There is always a risk involved in trying to make a real connection. Being aware of our presence and making small adjustments in our mindless habits will help our lives flow more harmoniously according to our own nature and natural rhythms."


So I remind myself: Am I awake, aware, fully present and living my life intentionally?

Cruise Line Class's insight:

Great advice! 

 

It may be one of the most difficult things a student is tasked to do, because understanding who you are and what you want is not always easy.

 

You are worth it -- so invest the time now to figure it out.  Take the time to self reflect on what you enjoy, what your dreams and goals are.  Understanding what and why those aspirations are important is an important first step.

 

Make it a great day!

Cruise Line Class's insight:

Who you know is important, and a simpler way of getting critical introductions.  When you want to apply for that special job, and you don't know anyone who works at that company...start with your friends, family, neighbors, career counselors, professors, etc.

 

Personal introductions are excellent ways of getting your resume at the top of the stack.

 

Would love to hear your ideas!

Starting a new job?

Starting a new job? | Career Advice, Tips, Trends, Resources | Scoop.it
Cruise Line Class's insight:

Starting a new job and meeting new people can be exciting, rewarding, and at times stressful.

 

Decide to make the best first impression. 

 

1. Before you start, do more than what is expected.  Know as much as you can about the company, recent articles, press releases, products, services, customers, and company history. 

 

2.  Ask for your job description before you start.  Review thoroughly and bring a copy with you.

 

3.  When you are being trained a specific function...take notes.  It will show you take your job role seriously.  It will also prevent you from asking questions on tasks that you have already been taught.

 

4.  Get to know you colleagues, and take interest in who they are.

 

5.  Find out what your supervisor's expectations are beyond the job description.

 

6.  Dress for success at work!

 

7.  Have more than a to do list every day….Have a plan, and write down tasks, items to follow up, key telephone numbers, etc.

 

----  If you have any other tips that worked for you, please share them with us.  We would love to hear from you.

 

Make it a great day!
