To Do Right Before Your Next Meeting

2021.07.23

Whether you are transitioning between back-to-back meetings or (luckily) have only one on the calendar, this is a 30-second technique that you can do on the fly.


Arrive in this moment.

Notice your emotional state, energy level.

.

.

.

Allow the residual charge of interactions and events of earlier today to neutralize or fade away.

Make space for this moment.

.

.

.

Make space for the new energy and interactions that will come in this meeting.

Let your breath be easy as you set some intentions for this meeting:

  • May you listen to understand, instead of listening to speak.
  • May you speak with purpose, clarity, and kind truth.
  • May your mind stay present instead of flitting forward and back in time.


Let these intentions take residence in your being.

.

.

.

Listen for any other intentions that may be coming to you, allow them to arrive.

.

.

.

Take one inhale and one exhale and transition into your meeting.
