Earlier this month, everyone in my department received an email from the HR department. They had scheduled an hour yoga session for all of us, part of motivating the employees in a rejuvenating way to increase productivity. We are associated with Taskque which is an easy task management software and I work in the client services department. During the session we came to know about mindfulness that leads us to productivity, after which I turn to Google to do my research and to my amazement mindfulness is a great thing for employees of my type, who are associated with projects or who are working in client servicing or are related to a manufacturing concern in anyway, etc.
What is mindfulness?
Just close your eyes and say mindfulness. Feel that depth in the word itself. Voila! You got my point. The word itself has healing properties. Now, according to Google, mindfulness is a mental state of any employee that is achieved by converging your focus on the present moment. It suggests that your mind is fully present and paying full attention to what is happening at this moment. It can relate to certain happenings or to your work and points towards the increment of your overall efficiency.
Now the definition might seem trivial, except for the fact they we do, at many times fail to provide complete attention to the task that is running at the moment. I am myself doing three things at the time of writing this piece and this is definitely dividing my attention on all the tasks I am trying to accomplish.
Let us now dig deep in the details
Mindfulness has much to do with attention and awareness. And the definition remains uniform throughout. The practice of being mindful grooms you into becoming sharp, staying alert and helps you in taking quick and appropriate decisions throughout your work life. Broadly summing up, you will avoid careless mistakes, and enhance your creative output when you start working mindfully.
The concept of mindfulness extend back to what the Monks from the far eastern mountains used to preach. But now it’s making its way into the corporate sectors of the world where professionals are benefiting from it and making their way towards building positive focus.
Apparently, we live in an attention deficit economy. The ability to build focus and be attentive at tasks is as highly esteemed as that of culminating some unique managerial or technical skill within you. Technology has worked as a cherry on top to build distractions around us. Social media, Communication through smartphones and other baits that easily distract us and keeps us away from focusing.
