Mindfulness and Simplicity: Using Less to Do More
BY Caitlin Delohery IN Mindfulness 0 Comment
So much in this world is about more more more — more products, more features, more communication, more meetings, more sales, more! It’s so easy to get distracted by MORE. I’m here to remind you about the power of less.
Mindfulness is such a buzzword in business these days because our philosophy of more is getting in the way of productivity, success, and happiness. Our push for more has gotten us too much.
We think we need all the bells and whistles, until we find ourselves with so many bells and whistles constantly ringing and whistling that we can’t hear ourselves think. We find that the tools that are supposed to make our lives easier sometimes bloat our to-do list even more.
In the din of this digital world, we sometimes forget about the most basic strategies and tools.
We all forget that a five-minute walk looking at the snow on the trees can reset us a lot faster than continuing to push on a task when we’re stuck. We forget that a straightforward brainstorming session might be able to unblock us more quickly than seven new productivity apps.
Mindfulness cures us of distraction. It helps us remember that the simplest pleasures and strategies are often the best. Mindfulness reminds us to take a look at the world around us. It reminds us that everything we need is right here, in this moment.
Like mindfulness, simplicity focuses on what’s most important, on shedding the excess that’s weighing you down. There are many ways to apply this philosophy in life and work. At karmaCRM, our goal is to provide simple sales tools so that you can focus on what’s most important — developing meaningful relationships with your customers.
