Mindful or Mindlessness?
Have you ever left for a destination and arrived, only to realize you remembered absolutely nothing about the trip? Or have you ever had to re-read a chapter of a book because you couldn’t remember what you just read?
Most of us can relate.
These are common examples of ‘mindlessness,’ the exact opposite of our goal. It is a state we often refer to as being ‘miles away’ or ‘autopilot.’ In our “always on” digital age our brains are bombarded with constant information and disruption, and as a result many of us are greatly detached and feeling overwhelmed , stressed or exhausted.
Fortunately, there is a scientifically-supported way to manage information overload and remain more focused– especially during the most critical phases of the job search, and our employment. - from Mindfulness, Mindset, Moxie and Mojo by Michael R. Frazier
