The solution to reactionary leadership
Once again, the Harvard Business Review encourages us to take up mindfulness. This time, their article explains how “Spending 10 minutes a day on Mindfulness Subtly Changes the Way You React to Everything.”
They offer a number of tips which you should check out by following the link above, but here are two of them:
- Don’t answer your emails first thing in the morning. It sets you in a reactionary mode. Instead, spend the first hour of your day, if possible, doing something that really takes advantage of your freshest time.
- Stop trying to multitask. Focus on one thing at a time. Dive in and give it everything. Then move on.
