    Buy Map  Using Map  Free Maps 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.

  • Want to Drive Innovation? Technology is Critical

    Jenn Lisak
    29 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    People are the lifeblood of any enterprise, especially when it comes to initiating change or implementing a new innovation process. Changes will fall flat without the wholehearted support and acceptance of those who are supposed to bring in the new order. However, the role of technology is equally important when it comes to innovation. Without a seamless IT system and infrastructure to support an innovation platform that complements the people, innovation will falter. Not only do organizations need to invest in a smart innovation platform, they also need to use it in the right way. These…

    I bet you didn’t know you’re wearing blinders – you know, those leather or plastic screens attached to a horse’s bridle, next to its eyes, that keeps it focused on what’s in front of it and prevents it from seeing what’s next to it and behind it. Not literally, of course. That would be ridiculous. But if you’re like most people, you’re wearing mental blinders that limit your ability to think, create and problem solve effectively. Your field of vision has been narrowed. You’ve lost sight of the big picture. Here’s the amazing part:…

The use of the word 'Tiger' is a recent phenomenon, which refers to the strict discipline of children by Asian parents such as in the book Tiger Mom, thereby giving Asian students an advantage in school and work.
