I did nothing !
When was the last time you said this ?
More importantly, when did you last experience this feeling of “not doing anything” as a leader ?
Our lives are way busier than ever before, especially in these uncertain & volatile times
You are always on the go
You are always plugged in
Even when you go to bed, you are already battling thoughts about the next day’s agenda
You hardly get time to stop & pause, right?
In most cultures and societies, doing nothing is considered a waste of time
It’s like you not supposed to stop and be idle
Most people believe that “doing nothing” is a sort of weakness. It’s considered a stigma
They constantly feel the need to be busy
But the truth is….
“Nothingness” can be a powerful practice to develop as a leader
To let go
To be with your own self
Nothingness is not the same as taking breaks from work
When you take breaks, you end up engaging in some other activity for leisure, so you are not really idle
But doing nothing really means just that…you do nothing
You allow yourself to discharge, before you recharge
You switch off
Now for some of you, doing nothing might create a fear…a fear of loss of control or a fear that what will other people say if they found you doing nothing
But surprisingly, nothingness can sometimes give you more control over with your emotions, thoughts & feelings
It creates space & freedom
It can raise your self-awareness and can create clarity & direction
But “doing nothing” is not as easy as it may seem, as you are probably conditioned to be in action all the time
It is a very conscious & deliberate practice in mindfulness…
To be silent
To be still
To be present in the moment – physically, emotionally and mentally
So here’s something for you to reflect upon
