Do you have a properly developed “mindfulness muscle”?
Mindfulness can be thought of as paying attention to our direct experiences in the moment with openness and curiosity. That means the mind is not in the past, obsessing over something that happened earlier. It’s not in the future, projecting and planning. It’s actually paying attention, without judging, to the here and now.
This is an ability that is developed over time. Just like a muscle that gets stronger with use, the ability to utilize mindfulness comes with practicing the skill, consistently on a regular basis. For leaders, the ability to be mindful provides them with the space to lead. It is the ability to create micro-pauses within the chaos to make effective decisions.
