Lightness Of Being

I have always loved the phrase “lightness of being”. For me it means less burden, joy, sweetness and clarity. Would you like to cultivate lightness of being in your work? Here are a few ideas to get you started:

• Stay agile in how you approach your work

• Consciously bring joy into your work each day

• Keep yourself physically balanced and fit

• Do not let your mind dominate you

• Learn how to handle stress and regain your center

• Try to take whatever happens with a balance of seriousness and lightness

• Realize that time changes things for us

• Look at your career as a journey, always leading you, eventually, to better things

There are many ways to grow your lightness of being. Commit to doing so and many benefits will ensue.

“I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.”
