Quality of Life
When we live with greater mindfulness we can act from choice and be more effective. When we examine the nature of what it means to live well at work or at home, we quickly realize that quality of life comes first.
Quality of Focus
Business schools are beginning to teach mindfulness techniques for people to increase focus. Developing these skills is increasingly important for succeeding in an accelerating environment with pervasive distractions.
