    Mind of the Leader challenges us to redefine our view of what makes a good leader.
    Carlos Martinez Ruizhas quoted2 years ago
    Compassion is not about giving in to other people. Compassion requires courage and strength to sometimes have difficult conversations or make tough decisions
    Carlos Martinez Ruizhas quoted2 years ago
    Compassion allows us to be rational, see the bigger picture, and make better decisions for other people—all for the greater good, as opposed to empathy, which narrows our field of vision to single individuals or causes.
    Carlos Martinez Ruizhas quoted3 years ago
    mindfulness practice, we train both our focus and our awareness. When we’re mindful, we’re able to overcome our minds natural tendency to wander. We can maintain focus on an object of our choice, notice when we get distracted, and then make decisions about where to place our attention. When we’re mindful, we also have a greater awareness of what we’re experiencing internally and externally. We can observe our thoughts as they arise and make best judgments what to focus on and what to let go.
    Carlos Martinez Ruizhas quoted3 years ago
    when you’re focused but on autopilot, your state of mind can be described as being in “flow.” It can be useful for routine tasks or when exercising. But the problem with this state is that we are not very aware and therefore are at risk of missing out on valuable information.
    Carlos Martinez Ruizhas quoted3 years ago
    Good ideas only become innovative solutions when you have the focus to retain and execute them by bringing them into the upper right quadrant.
    Carlos Martinez Ruizhas quoted3 years ago
    The more focused we become, the more we will also be aware—and the other way around.
    Carlos Martinez Ruizhas quoted3 years ago
    Focus enables more stable awareness, and awareness enables focus to return to what we’re
    Carlos Martinez Ruizhas quoted3 years ago
    Focus is the ability to concentrate on a task at hand for an extended period of time with ease. Awareness is the ability to make wise choices about where to focus your attention. Optimal effectiveness is achieved when you’re simultaneously focused and aware.
    Carlos Martinez Ruizhas quoted3 years ago
    mindfulness simple and close to its ancient roots: paying attention, in the present moment, with a calm, focused, and clear mind.
    Carlos Martinez Ruizhas quoted3 years ago
    When you learn how to manage your attention, you learn how to manage your thoughts. You learn to hold your focus on what you choose, whether it’s this page, an email, a meeting, or the people you are with. In other words, you train yourself to be more present in the here and now.
    Carlos Martinez Ruizhas quoted3 years ago
    have found that three mental qualities stand out as being critical for increasing engagement, happiness, and productivity: mindfulness (M), selflessness (S), and compassion (C).
    Carlos Martinez Ruizhas quoted3 years ago
    Leadership today is about unlearning management and relearning being human
    Carlos Martinez Ruizhas quoted3 years ago
    If we as leaders are mindful, we will better know what really matters to our people. We are more present, attentive, and curious. It is not always easy, but I know the difference between being present with my people and when I am not. I only have impact when I am.
    Carlos Martinez Ruizhas quoted3 years ago
    It calls for leaders to be humans first: to be mindful, selfless, and compassionate and in doing so, to develop the qualities that enable engagement, fulfillment, and meaning—which lead to greater business success.

    We move up and down a scale between euphoric, elated states and depressed, despondent states, depending on the latest results or news.
    souppyosepfahas quoted3 years ago
    Does this mean you need to become someone who doesn’t enjoy the ups and downs of life? Quite the opposite. It means you can relish the things you truly enjoy without developing an all-encompassing desire or addiction to those things.

    Equanimity is a form of accepting the good just as you accept the bad and vice versa: they’re both transitory states that will pass.
    souppyosepfahas quoted3 years ago
    Equanimity is a mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper. It is a mind in balance, despite both positive and negative events. In this way, equanimity is the middle ground between attachment and aversion to the events, interactions, and feelings we experience in life. It’s the art of viewing life’s successes and tragedies as ebbs and flows without getting pulled up or down. Equanimity is an important component of self-compassion and in leading ourselves, because it teaches us to be in balance with things as they are, to be clear minded and accepting of life’s vagaries.
