Effective leaders are steady and unperturbed by daily frustrations. They have what students of Zen Buddhism call an “unmoving mind,” which possesses:
  • Stability.

  • Resistance to distractions and obstructions.

  • Inner certainty.

  • Commitment to principles.
You don’t have to study Zen to develop an unmoving mind. Start with one simple outlook: See every day as a good day.

That thought alone starts to cultivate the steadiness that helps to make you a leader.

— Adapted from White Collar Zen: Using Zen Principles to Overcome Obstacles and Achieve Your Career Goals, Steven Heine, Oxford University Press.
