The second day of the workshop went extremely well and I learned a great deal, especially from the skeptical participants. Whether this was because of the meditation, I don’t know—there was no control group for me to test this on—but even if my mini-intervention did not have any effect on the quality of my teaching, it had a significant effect on the quality of my experience. Is there a particular person who upsets you? Is it a particular trait or behavior? Try loving kindness meditation, and experience positive emotions toward that person.

As you read through the book, try out the different choices. If, after some deliberation or some experimentation, a particular choice does not speak to you at all, skip to the next one, or repeat a choice that you have already dealt with. Return to the choice that you skipped at a later date, to see whether something is there for you after all. You may want to select a few of the choices in the book as a subject for discussion at your book club, or among your family and friends. In the workplace, meaningful discussions about choices can increase the cohesiveness and effectiveness of a team as well as provide an antidote to the kind of rigid thinking that so often stifles innovation.
