Mindfulness has helped me succeed in almost every dimension of my life. By stopping regularly to look inward and become aware of my mental state, I stay connected to the source of my actions and thoughts and can guide them with considerably more intention.
I used to be really anxious about money. I got that from my parents. I still am, but for entirely different reasons.
The first time I looked at Yammer, I thought I was on Facebook. Work is not a social network, with serendipitous communications and photo collections. Work is about managing tasks and responding to things quickly.
It was a precondition to leaving Facebook that I wasn't going to start something that was just about chasing money.
One of the purposes of life, and selfishly what makes people happy, is building things that are impactful.
