Mindfulness is empowering because it cultivates greater awareness, clarity, and acceptance of present moment reality. Mindfulness as a work or life strategy:
> Saves time > Increases memory retention > Preserves integrity > Improves performance > Improves perception.
Who wouldn't like that? Successful people are highly skilled in using their focused attention on their activity, even if they spend little time on that activity. They can efficiently absorb, process, and discern and at very high rate when focusing their deep and mindful attention.
I challenge you to be fully awake, aware, focused in present, and see extraordinary in mundane for next two hours. Be ever vigilant that you are paying attention.
There are many resources on mindfulness at your local or virtual bookseller. Here are two that I can recommend:
1. Wherever You Go, There You Are : Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life by Jon Kabat-Zinn
2. The Miracle of Mindfulness : A Manual on Meditation -- by Thich Nhat Hanh, Mobi Ho (Translator)
Having a personal support team is a great way to keep you on track. You can also use a coach to help you reach your goals on personal growth and your desire to handcraft a life of choice.
