WorldWide Drilling Resource

46 APRIL 2022 WorldWide Drilling Resource® that the future will take care of itself. In other words, keep busy! Get so caught up in your work that you have no time to ponder all the “What ifs.” Ask yourself, “What is the worst that could happen?” Then either accept it or seek out the answers you need to fix it. If you choose the latter, you must collect all the facts, analyze them, make a decision, and then act on it. Additional Ways You can Practice Mindfulness - 8 Mindful listening: During a conversation, instead of anticipating sharing your next thought, focus on what the person is saying. 8 Mindful walking: Go for a walk in nature, focus on the plants and animals you see; fully experience all the sights, sounds, and smells around you. 8 Mindful eating: When you eat, focus on what you are eating. Chew slowly and savor every texture and flavor. Don't eat until you are hungry; then stop when you feel full. You can use these techniques to ward off other negative thinking as well. I suggest muting your phone when you need to focus; there’s nothing more annoying or distracting when you are fully engaged than to be startled out of your momentum by your phone’s abrupt ringing. Finally, I encourage you to turn off your TV - especially the news - it’s nothing but a fear factory. Robert Robert is an innovation/change speaker, author, and consultant.
