Awaken your senses to let your imagination run wild. If you feel besieged by the daily irritations of your job and feel too overwhelmed to ponder creative challenges or big-picture issues, detach yourself from the rush of workaday pressures. How? Visualize yourself sitting in one corner of the room watching you do your work. Try to capture all the details of what you’re doing and narrate your activities. Another tactic: In the privacy of your office, spend some time working in slow motion. This forces you to focus on every step of a task and break it into its component parts. Finally, stop what you’re doing for a minute and listen to every sound, from your breathing to the whir of a computer. Each of these exercises sharpens your senses and introduces you to an extra dimension of awareness.
