Mindfulness is incredibly important in a hectic world. It is a survival skill or a set of skills.

Susan Taylor's curator insight, October 25, 2013 8:44 AM

We can't directly control our mind's waves of negative feelings.  And blocking or ignoring them does not eliminate them; it amplifies them.  Emotional Agility is the key.

 

What is Emotional Agility?  When you're mindful about a pattern of thought without engaging or repressing that thought, you are acting with emotional agility. 

 

The actual practice of emotional agility comes in four steps:

 

(1) Recognize your pattens, noticing when you're getting hooked by emotions.

(2) Label things for what they are: A thought as a thought; an emotion as an emotion.

(3) Accept the things that are happening in your mind.

(4) Act on something that is constant -- your values.

Successful Innovative Entrepreneurship is Seldom Learnt at Business School!

Successful Innovative Entrepreneurship is Seldom Learnt at Business School! | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

It takes enormous passion, deep vision and incredible anti-fragility to become a successful innovative entrepreneur, more than most of us could ever imagine! My recent experience at the European Innovation and Entrepreneurship Conference in Brussels, last month reaffirmed this as I suffered through a number of mostly un-innovative, boring laborious and mostly irrelevant research papers on the subject, presented by the cream of global academia.

 In our complex, fast-changing knowledge economy, this ability to manage one’s thoughts and feelings is essential to business success. Effective leaders don’t buy into or try to suppress their inner experiences. Instead they approach them in a mindful, values-driven, and productive way—developing emotional agility.

Susan Taylor's curator insight, October 13, 2013 7:08 PM

We've all done it...participating in a conference call while checking email, Tweeting and checking our Facebook news feed.  Driving while on our cell phone (hopefully hands free) and drinking coffee.  Dinner with the family in conversation together until the phone beeps indicating we have a new text message.

 

Whatever it is we are doing -- one thing is clear.  Doing too many things at the same time not only hampers our creativity and innovation; research now shows that multi-tasking can affect our memory, leading to stress and even illness.

 

So what do you do the next time you need to be in three places at the same time?  Jenny Ebermann suggests that "we need to learn to scale down and approach tasks, demands and workload in a different, mindful way."

Citation: "Let us be clear: No human group can survive, let alone effectively cooperate, without being able to develop a shared outlook on the world which is the precondition for acting together. But it is also the case that social groups thrive by making room for plurality, dissenting voices, and different perspectives."

How to Meditate: A Beginner's Guide

The in's and out's of meditation — what it is, why it's used, and the many benefits you can get from practicing it.

 

The word meditation can immediately conjure images of Buddhist monks in saffron robes or new-age beatniks in clouds of incense — which isn’t necessarily untrue. But meditation isn’t about religion per se, or even spirituality, really.
