Find Peace of Mind

Noisy world we live in. People talk loudly on cell phones. Ring tones  can  be heard in once serene restaurants. Most cars have radios on. Most homes  have TVs on. I saw a man chatting on his Blackberry while eating  his lunch  yesterday. Not good for digestion.

Each of us – I suggest to you – must find “pockets of peace”.

Time for what I call “The 3 Ss ”: Silence, Solitude and Stillness.

At least, find some time (say 15 minutes a day) to be quiet. Think. Reflect. Be. That best practice will make you so  much better at work, at home,with self.

Some Practical Strategies:

• When you are in your car/in a taxi, keep the radio off. Use that  time
to renew. To observe. To introspect.
• Take 15 minutes before you sleep to immerse yourself in peace.
Just chill. Get comfortable with no noise. Get comfortable  with
• Make your home a sanctuary. It’s a wild world (jungle?) out there.
Create a deeply peaceful home environment. Reduce clutter. Cut
back on the noise. Get one of those mobile water fountains.
• Take a daily vow of silence. This one isn’t just for monks. It’s for smart
execs, entrepreneurs , business people.

Big idea here: talking consumes a ton of energy. I can’t believe how much  some people talk. All day long.

On their mobiles. At the water cooler . On the train home. Exhausting just watching them. Be silent  for 15 minutes a day (at the very least).

You’ll have more energy. More peace. More joy. Better performance.
So chase – no, hunt peace down. Fight the noise.

Get  away from the maddening crowds – at least for a bit. You’ll be glad you did.
