Got Regrets? The question is what are we going to do with the rest of our lives to ensure we don’t experience any of these same regrets later on.

Brian Martin's insight:

Is there joy in your busy?  Reading this article brought a new awareness to my state of "busy".  Most of the "busy" in our lives we create, and yet how much of it brings real joy?   Fast forward to the end of my life ... will I be saying "I wish I would have been busier?"  I doubt it .. I'm confident I'll reflect back and say "I wish I could have experienced more moments of joy and brought more joyful moments to others".  If your busy isn't bringing joy .. change the busy.

Mindfulness at Work

Mindfulness at Work | Transforming Leaders; Self Care & Awareness | Scoop.it
