Two important words are the focus — mindful and intentional. Mindfulness is knowing the The Trickster is in all of us, and knowing when he’s at work in my head, and creating space for making choices about response. Taking action with intention is the second important word here. I didn’t know if the experiment would work.
Brian and I started focusing on ‘self-care’ when we first came up with the Agile Best Self Principles. After steady and intentional self-care practices, some pretty unexpected things started to happen.
