This HBR article is a clear and crisp sales pitch for meditation from Bill George, former CEO of Medtronics and former director of Goldman Sachs. Bill is now an author on values-based leadership and teaches at Harvard.

Every one of my executive coaching clients has a mindfulness practice – even if it’s just taking three conscious breaths each day.

I have never heard someone say it does not benefit them, and many say it has added to their executive development simply by being more grounded and present.

Using a daily mindfulness practice is as important as not eating too many donuts and making sure you move your body and raise your heart beat a few times each week. Just do it!
