Next weekend I’ll be speaking at IdeaWave, a cool little festival of ideas that I’ve had the pleasure of being part of since its inception. My talk — slated to be no longer than seven minutes — is going to be about Mindfulness 2.0.
What exactly is Mindfulness 2.0?
Well, you’ll have to come to the talk to get all of the details, but here’s a bit of a teaser:
“Mindfulness 2.0 is about my belief that we are on the verge of a new age of mindfulness — and I discuss how this has managed to happen. I believe that productivity systemization and mindfulness are beginning to intersect to the point where we have gone beyond simple to-do lists and are moving towards to-be lists. We are no longer just interested in “doing” productive, we are striving to “be” productive — and in the things we really are passionate about. Technology, social media and the Internet can work on either side of that equation — it can distract us or attract us to what we really want out of life — and a new age of mindfulness married with proper use of systems and technology is on the horizon.”
