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:

  1. 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.
  2. Stop trying to multitask. Focus on one thing at a time. Dive in and give it everything. Then move on.
