[00:00:03] Mindfulness and agile can help you lead a more fulfilled life, at work and at home. Mindfulness practices help us gain insight and clarity, while agile practices help us forge new paths. We explore both.
[00:00:20] Mirela Petalli: The original intent of mindfulness was to reduce suffering. But neuroscientists and psychologists are now discovering that mindfulness practitioners focus better, are more likely to achieve life goals, and are more creative.
[00:00:34] Lots of successful folks practice mindfulness, including Bill Gates, Ray Daleo, and Oprah Winfrey.
[00:00:42] Daniel Greening: The original intent of agile was to reduce project failures in companies. Managers are now discovering that agile improves employee happiness and alignment. The most successful companies in the world use agile for projects. Individuals use it, too.
[00:00:59] Agile is iterative experimentation to explore, adapt, and overcome big challenges. You might want to quit smoking, build a career, publish a bestseller, or solve a humanitarian crisis. Agile folks approach challenges like scientists would. We review expert advice and identify their theories. We test those theories and learn important skills, with a sequence of inexpensive experiments.
[00:01:31] Mirela Petalli: The mindful agility podcast has 25 minute episodes, with 15 minutes of discussion and 10 minutes of guided meditation. It will help you be more mindful and agile in everything you do.
