About the Program

How did you distribute your 168 hours a week? If you spent more than 42% at work, this is the workshop for you. How often do you check your smartphone? If you check your phone every hour or less, you would be interested in learning how to deal with your stressful life. Do you spend your day of back-to-back meetings, a hundred or so emails, interminable conference calls, dozens of decisions, a contentious conversation or two, and a rough commute? When we are all busy at work or in our life, have you thought about how you could make the impact to gain your happy work life? This workshop is to help you through a mindfulness journey to identify what you can make a difference or any alternative to organize your mindfulness game plan to stay on track with it. For example, how could we manage our time better to get a beautiful mind?

    This workshop is based on a book “Overworked and Overwhelmed” by Scott Eblin who introduces the following three steps:
  • Your best: You will organize the characteristics and behaviors that reflect how you are when you are showing up as the best version of yourself
  • Your Routine: If you want to be in the certain way (excellence), you have to do things that reinforce that state.
  • Outcomes: What difference do you want to make in your professional life, working environment, and community?

You will determine your most important goals and sets you on a course to reach them. Get started by clarifying the core characteristic that represents you at your best when you feel most comfortable and productive. The routines in four domains could be physical, spiritual, mental, and relational that will reinforce peak performance. Through the reflection, we hope to care in the three main areas - at your best, what the routines to make you at best, and what outcome would come in team, community, organization.
