Prayer is the highest state. It is the return to the root of your being. To be still and to be aware cannot be made in haste.

Let's stop treating busy as a badge of honor

Let's stop treating busy as a badge of honor | RSCJ Priority: Contemplation | Scoop.it
Social Media expert Karen Tingen discusses our collective obsession with being busy.
Annette Schmeling's insight:

Wayne Muller, in his book A Life of Being, Having and Doing Enough, points out how the Seven Deadly Sins have been repurposed as the new Seven American Values: "We're number one! (Pride) You can have it all! (Greed) Sex sells! (Lust) I just want to be famous on TV! (Envy) All you can eat! (Gluttony) The world owes everything to me! (Sloth) If any bad guys stand in my way, well, bring 'em on! (Anger)." Busyness is a badge of honor and has lead to a culture of exhaustion, disappointment, fear and anger. 

 

Simplifying our choices and being more mindful and prayer-full makes possible a place for deep listening, dependency on others, right action, gratitude, compassion, mercy, and happiness from the inside out.

Examen is an opportunity to stop and take stock of your day, and in this case your year. 

Leaders thrive by understanding who they are and what they value, by becoming aware of unhealthy blind spots or weaknesses that can derail them, and by cultivating the habit of continuous self-reflection and learning.
