The Being & The Doing EPISODE 7:
The Go/No Go Factor
Being more mindful as you go about your day means you can make more conscious and intentional choices. Then you are better able to align those choices with your priorities and values and show up authentically in your interactions in the world. In this episode Laurel explores the skills of being present and personal presence and how they have a direct impact on ourselves and those around us.

THIS EPISODE’S HOMEWORK
Something to think about:
What gets in the way of being present?
Something to try:
This one is not for the faint of heart – pick one word that you think best describes you and what other people’s experience of being around you is like. Then ask 3 people what their experience of you is – maybe phrase is like this – if you could pick one word to describe me what would it be – and please be brutually honest. Feel free to ask for more info but don’t debate it with them. Just say thanks. And like any feedback its simply information that you can keep or discard.
