I saw I Heart Huckabees this weekend. Fun and intelligent! In the movie they refer to something called "pure being."?? Pure Being occurs when you can discard all the thoughts that get in the way of being present. The technique they used in the movie was to hit each other in the head with a big rubber ball until all thoughts are gone (or scrambled beyond recognition). If you follow the movie link and watch the trailer, you will see the ball in action.
I see a management tool here…
… but before you bop your manager in the head and blame me, read the rest.
Get rid of those extraneous thoughts, habits and actions and focus on what matters! Do that which enlivens you!
I´ve coined a new phrase – Pure Management Being
Here´s my definition: Pure Management Being (PMB) occurs when a manager is one with a mission/intent/goal in a way that is deep, profound, and unobstructed. PMB is the mental state that precedes our best work and is a fundamental component of finding our voice (Covey), highest goal (Ray), purpose (Shapiro/Leider) or flow at work (Csikszentmihalyi).
How to do PMB: Grab a big rubber ball…kidding (kind of).
I´m gonna think on this a bit longer and share more tomorrow. Anyone know of a good makeup that covers facial bruising?
