I had a discussion the other day with colleague and while discussing many fabulous guiding principles of business, one that really resonated was the idea of “being in the moment,” meaning if you are there [in the moment], be there [in the moment] 100 percent.
There are so many things on our plates, so many places we could be, and so many things we need to do. We make daily choices to determine where we go, what to do and who to see. Once we make those choices, we must own our choices to the fullest.
Example – You have a business meeting or lunch with your dad. Choose. Once you choose, be physically and mentally at the same place. What good are you at a business meeting if your mind keeps thinking about your dad? And how much time are you really spending with your dad if all you can think about is business?
We live by moments, so make each one of them count and be in the moment to live them to the fullest! 🙂
