Mindfulness: an antidote for workplace ADD

Mindfulness: an antidote for workplace ADD | Unplug | Scoop.it
Some consultants tell me that the number one problem in the workplace today is attention. People are distracted. They're in a state of what's called "continuous partial attention" where
craig daniels's insight:

A few years ago I managed a catering operation that required of its employees huge bursts of focused attention to get one catering job after another prepared, packaged and out the door on time.


Customers would not understand if we were late with the food for a wedding or family reunion and one of my jobs was to join in with the cooks and preparers both helping and cheer-leading at the same time.


I would see that everyone in the room was constantly distracted by the flood of thoughts swirling around their brains and I had to gently bring them back to the job at hand, kind of like a Zen teacher with a meditation stick (keisaku).


Distraction is part of the human condition, part of life. It doesn't matter if the distractions are within our minds or are created by an electronic device, we struggle with distractions constantly.


It's much easier to point to phones and computers as the cause of the current distraction and it certainly lends itself to a quick fix. Whatever the distraction is, Mindfulness practice can give us a refreshed and renewed sense of focus in all we do.
