Mindfulness is bringing our ‘full minds’ to what we’re doing. Not our distracted minds, not our blaming minds, not our justifying minds.
Our full minds.
You know how it feels when someone is really listening to you.
You feel respected, valued, heard.
But it’s even more than that, you feel…seen.
And then they say “tell me more about that”, and your mind pops, your ideas take off.
It feels like there’s more space somehow.
A sense of appreciation, and trust.
For you. Who you are, what you’ve done and what you can do.
That’s exactly how your team feel when you listen to them.
Tomorrow, bring your ‘full mind’ to whoever is in front of you.
Be inquisitive, ask a question, and watch how they want to give you more.
