Mindfulness : Developing Empathy

Two tips from Dr Ellen Langer:

a) Imagine that everybody can read your thoughts. Oops! If your thoughts are totally transparent, you just cannot afford to think bad things about other people, right? Invariably you will become more understanding and see others’ perspectives.

b) Question the belief that you’re the only one who can do it, that there’s only one way to do it, and that the company will collapse if you don’t do it. When you open your views to be mindful, the stress just dissipates
