2) Gently place tip of your tongue against roof of your mouth just behind your front teeth (continue to breathe easily.) Imagine you are holding a tiny droplet of oil between tip of your tongue & roof of your mouth.
I originally got this idea from Eric Robbie on a training he did with Michael Breen & I tinkered around with it a bit, & it’s a great way of turning off your internal dialogue. Turning off your internal dialogue is an excellent way of allowing yourself to focus on present. This is particularly important if you want to be able to pick up clues that people give you about how they’re thinking. Maybe I'll write another article about that internal dialogue.......
"The only way to live is to accept each moment as an unrepeatable miracle, which is exactly what it is - a miracle and unrepeatable."

So, how do you relate this knowledge and my rantings to ones Business or day to day life?
Business and life today seems to operate at a faster & faster pace. People have lots of demands on their time, & need every advantage they can get to be more effective. When I do corporate and business consultancy, one of most common ‘challenges’ that people want to deal with is being focused & making progress on important business objectives or life goals.
As I’ve investigated how people avoid being focused, I’ve found that, they are often not centred in present. Instead, they are thinking about what’s happening tomorrow, or what happened yesterday, or running through a list of things that they need to do later. As a result, their attention is not in present.
I used to work in Victoria in Central London and if you have ever been there during rush hours it is a hectic place. What I find interesting is that you can tell who is engaged in moment and who is thinking about their day or next day. Those people whose awareness is within their heads, mulling over their day or dreading what's in store tomorrow are ones bumping into people or veering off in wrong directions. Whereas those people whose awareness is outside their heads and engaged in their surroundings are those that are balanced, poised and agile, like a panther!
When you bring your attention & energy into present moment, you can accomplish things more quickly, solve problems more effectively, & enjoy process more than you might expect. So, thirdly, have a go at connecting with moment more and more in your days...
3) Before starting an important task, take a moment to centre yourself & relax. Then, get clear about what you want to accomplish, then begin.
I wish you all very best and hope to engage in present with many more people here.
