Psychology of Performance – 4

I just completed a very interesting book, “Born to Run” that my son and colleague, Matt Mines recommended. It is about long distance running, the Tarahumara runners, elite ultra marathoners such as Scott Jurek and most importantly, joy. There are many wonderful stories in the book. The most capativating were the stories of the runners who were in the moment, filled with joy and performing. The application to our world of work is clear as well. How often are we in the moment, filled with joy and happiness as we do our work? If not, what do we need to do to engage at that level? Where your mind goes, the energy goes!

Have a day filled with loving kindness, sympathetic joy, compassion, equinimity and impeccable sobriety,

Robert A. Mines, Ph.D.
