Staying mindful as an entrepreneur can be an almost impossible task. Phone calls, emails, systems to set up, products and services to develop – it can almost seem like it is too much at times. While the list seems to be never ending, there is a good reason to stay with the task at hand and remain mindful when you are working.
Let me give you an example. I was setting up a conference call and while I had the right time, I didn’t have the right date. Why did that happen? I was likely multi-tasking. When we are not with ourselves in the moment that we are in, we are not engaged in the process. We make mistakes. We can’t close a sale because we seem distracted. Typos go out in emails. We use a tone with someone that causes an issue.
The solution is simple. Be mindful as an entrepreneur. Stay on the task at hand. If you have a mind that races (hello me!) then leave a pad of paper on your desk to jot notes so you can remember the items without being frustrated by them. The result will be better work coming from you, a better connection with people and you will feel more energized at the end of the day.
