  • extremely relevant and helpful- it is easy to get caught up in 'busyness' and stray from what is important and lose focus. This presentation is helpful to pretty much everyone, even if they are not business owners. Thanks for sharing! and congrats on being featured!

  • Hello Bruce, Thanks for writing so beautifully. I am a mindfulness practitioner and teacher and I do resonate with all that you said. I too can get caught up from time to time. It's just a constant practice to become aware of my mind and to clear the clutter that's built up. It really does help generate fresh and effective ideas. I really enjoyed reading your article.

    Thanks again,
