Take a mindful moment…
Mindfulness enhance employee engagement. I have experimented and landed upon my ideal engagement zone or E-Zone: the optimal length of time that I can remain fully engaged. It is 12 minutes.
To learn more about how to determine you engagement zone visit my post on the E-Zone.
I often string many 12 minute periods together when working on larger projects. I will pause after each 12 minutes for a mindful moment. Today I encountered the following quotation from Leo Tolstoy which resonates with the short gap I take between E-zones:
In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.
I encourage you to fully engage but don’t forget to “look around you.”
