Too Busy to Meditate

Most well read business executives at least appreciate the benefits of meditation - the art of being mindful and present.  Many of us want to meditate or learn to do so, but it is always for tomorrow's to-do list.  It really is hard to justify.  But HBR justifies it by saying it makes you more productive.  This got me listening.

What really seems to have convinced me was this section:

Research shows that an ability to resist urges will improve your relationships, increase your dependability, and raise your performance. If you can resist your urges, you can make better, more thoughtful decisions. You can be more intentional about what you say and how you say it. You can think about the outcome of your actions before following through on them.

Agreed. It's like my mom always said: Delaying gratification is a sign of maturity. :-)

Now that actually made me listen. They MAKE you meditate? Maybe it isn't the BS I always joke around it is.
