    Mindfulness, also called wise attention, helps us see what we’re adding to our experiences.Sharon Salzberg What Does Living Mindfully Actually Mean? Being mindful means being an impartial observer. It is the ability to stay present in the moment without allowing the mind to get side-tracked. It’s somewhat a state of heightened sensory awareness where you are no longer at the mercy of your own habitual thought patterns. You are instead able to see things more clearly and consciously. Mindfulness is a state of awareness without judgment — awareness about both the long and short-term…

    Innovation initiatives have a habit of causing excitement and expectation; the organisation is trying something different and wanting to do new things. Senior management are anticipating the brand new shiny ideas, and front-line employees can’t wait to be rid of their daily frustrations. So what could go wrong? However, in all this excitement, there’s a group that is usually neglected in the engagement strategy – the middle managers.

    The computer trends are pointing to lighter, more portable and highly mobile technology for today's work force. This is no less true for all of us in education as many schools are moving to tablets and devices that connect to the cloud. With this shift, it is exciting to think about how teachers are using their classrooms to cull out unique learning spaces.

But in practical applications, this default structure is not enough and powerful to use.

    It’s that time of year again for the new XMind! Yes, we name it XMind 6, which will be the next major release of XMind. In this new version, we’ll bring eight big new features and a dozen significant improvements, along with most of known bugs fixed. Why do we name the next big release XMind 6?
