One of the most rewarding activities that I am involved in right now is a weekly men’s circle that I co-facilitate in Maui Community Correctional Center. We call the group Men’s Mentoring and its aim is to offer inmates of the jail a place to share in confidence, with no judgment, issues in their life that they are struggling with, and to grow through that sharing.
The second in an occasional series called Shortest Reads.
Do you ever have an event coming up that you are just not looking forward to, indeed dreading? You are mentally counting down the days to when you will have to show up at a time and place that you could quite happily strike off your calendar? That meeting becomes a gnawing presence in your life, making it impossible for you to relax, and difficult to fully concentrate on anything else.
This post is the first of an occasional series that I am calling "Shortest Reads." As the name implies these are not long blog posts, but rather musings that I thought to share with you as they come to me, instead of trying to wrap them round a longer post.
Old habits die hard…even, or maybe especially when they run counter to something that you truly believe in.
Can you move from frantic behaviour to concentration? Can you move from disturbance to instant focus? Can you jump from requests for help to focusing on a job that you are trying to get done?
