Your mind is the most powerful tool you have. Mind your way. I come across a lot of short sentences of advice with “mind”. Paying Attention is very important in life. “Mind how you go”. “Mind the gap”.
Creative power is in our Imagination. It is amazing to realise the amount of things that would not be in existence today without the imagination of someone. From aircraft to zylophones, it’s awesome what men have created from inspiration triggered by their environment.
Time is something that is finite that we all have the same of every day. How we allocate time determines our success in life. There are always demands on your time.
I have come across children who have been taught less than others their age because of their attention span. Managing competing demands on my time when I was mentally ill was an uphill task.
Improving my communication skills helped in no small measure to get me out of that situation. Here are a few tips I picked up:
###1 Always listen to the end
A part message can be substantially different from the full message. Zoe always kept reminding me we get rewarded for a job well done – not just for doing the job. The right result is always the most important thing.
No one can see themselves except with a mirror. This makes self-awareness even more of a challenge. Receiving constant feedback from Zoe on how I came across propelled me into concerted action to ensure what I communicated was exactly what I meant to.
###3 Mind your body language
Research has it that our emotions show up immediately in our bodies and later in our conscious mind. When you are feeling discouraged, defeated, or any other significant negative emotion, your body will show it before you’re conscious of it.
