Why sitting still and listening to your own thoughts for a few minutes a day may be the best business move you can make.
(from the article): Too often as leaders we tend to hold on, hold in, and hold back. Whether it's "holding onto" our jobs, our prestige, our paychecks; "holding back" our views, concerns and suggestions; or "holding in" our frustrations, inspirations and ideas--at work our bias toward "holding" can have a singularly blinding effect on how we skillfully engage challenges. Letting go, on the other hand, of our fixed mindsets, discursiveness, opinions, emotional habits and much more, can provide vital perspective in effectively leading a team, an enterprise, or a life.
And what happens when we exercise this muscle of "letting go" in conducting daily business? We become agile.
Insightful article. Great thought here:
"This gesture of "letting go" of our internal gossip, while simple, is also a highly concentrated gesture of leadership agility. Like ballet dancers rehearsing a demi-plié or an acrobat practicing a handstand pirouette over and over again, here in mindfulness awareness meditation we, too, are exercising core muscles of basic human wisdom and agility."
