Forget confidence, the ability to speak really well, or being a multitasker, according to this article by American scholars, solitude is actually a great attribute of good leadership. Let's break it down. According to this article by the American Scholar, thinking means concentrating on one thing long enough to develop an idea about it. And that can be only done when you're by yourself, not being biased by the social media that you're consuming or the news or the books that you're reading. The article then goes into the three types of solitude that you can practice: it could be introspection, thinking and sitting with your thoughts, understanding them, and the second could be just doing focused work without distractions. And the third is friendship, not sitting in a group, but rather having a meaningful relationship with one person and talking to them. Go and listen to it today.

Have you ever found it difficult to meditate or to be a little more mindful? Start with this book, The 19 meditations for authentic living, the doors of joy by Daniel Odier. Here is a paragraph from it:

Our mind really deserves time off a large part of the stress and tiredness that limits us stems from the constant and incessant discourse that keeps us buzzing day and night. The whole body can relax when there is silence.

And I am sure it's going to make a change in your daily life, make it more mindful and more powerful.
Have you ever felt that you have very different energy and working style as compared to everyone else? Well, your human design might be able to answer a few questions for you. So recently I got into human design. Apparently, it is this new way of understanding how your body functions, what type of energy you have, when are you most active, what kind of work you should be doing, and essentially trying to break down how your body is coded. Now, authenticity and accuracy are up for question but go use this link above and figure out what your chart is. I am a five one projector. Tell me what profile you are and what you think about my human design.
