Mindfulness Training at Citrix
Potential Project | 5:01
So far the program has let me rest better at night, and I actually look forward to 10 minutes training every morning. It's such a good way to start the day. At work now I can practice using, um, beginner's mind acceptance. I become more curious and ask more relevant questions, and I also now can practice focus my best effort on the things I have control over.
In my daily work life, uh, I have, uh, really tried to start coming off this, uh, action addiction. Um, so, uh, instead of jumping right into emails and notifications, uh, I, I really try to, uh, to start the day by, uh, prioritizing, uh, the most important tasks, um, and also doing at least one of those. Before I, I jump into, uh, being more reactive, go going through inmates and so on.
My way of working has definitely changed, um, in the, I'm more focused on each task. Um, my role is, is such that I get, uh, distracted and a lot of people are distracting me. Which is the way it's supposed to be. But what I, what I've definitely learned is to, to choose the distractions. Um, so they don't, um, affect my working day.
Because previously I could just, I could be here for eight, nine hours and then I'd leave the office and go, what did I do today? And today it now, because I, I can actually, so, Okay, yes. You can ask me a question and I can sort of refocus much easier, and that's definitely something I've gained from the mindfulness program.
I, I think one of the, one of the best things I've gotten out of this is, is kind of, uh, uncoupling, um, myself from my thoughts or from the thoughts, uh, and. Kind of not auto piloting, not reacting to, to things immediately. And just giving myself, uh, second or two to think about the situation and whether I can affect it or not.
