“The more I give myself permission to live in the moment and enjoy it without feeling guilty or judgmental about any other time, the better I feel about the quality of my work.” Dr. Wayne Dyer
Why is this important?
Dr Dyer is reminding us to be not just ‘in the room’ but really, fully engaged in what we are doing.
There are organizations who are populated by multi taskers however, the wisest of leaders know that multi tasking is counterproductive and creates sloppy results at best. The way I see it, multi tasking is to the quality of your work as cigarette smoking is to the quality of your health.
Knowing this to be true, the wise build coaching cultures that value behaviours that demonstrate mindfulness, focus and full engagement.
Why? The ultimate outcome is an engaged workforce is that it improves the quality of goods and services delivered and it reduces employee turnover.
Each of these facts correlates positively to customer loyalty which translates directly to improved sales and profits.
It is up to each one of as individuals to make the choice, give ourselves permission, to be in the moment, do one thing at a time and to know that the time for the next thing will come next. Like this we can look back over the events of each day fondly and feel a sense of pride in a job well done.
I’m especially grateful to you for taking the time to read my post! I hope you’ll share it with others — and leave your comments on how we can banish the Monday morning blues and create workforces that are “Alive from 9 to 5”!
