Business Meets Mindfulness at enso/InsightLA Program | Michael Sigman
I’m sure you’ve heard of him, he has some pretty cool ideas for batteries, electric cars, and space. The first option was the “Pay as you go” plan. This plan is popular because it requires no money down and would reduce the price of my energy by about 41.5%. My new estimated average electric bill would be about $50 less per month and I would save nearly $24,000 over 20 years. Obviously, with no upfront costs, I would be cash flow positive from day one.

In practicing outside of class, I’ve begun to see a progression. When I started I was concerned with trying to ‘do it well,’ which actually created stress. But practicing just being with it and observing has made for a rewarding if not always pleasant experience.” Carla Fernandez, enso’s brand and culture director, says, “Start-up life is prime time for an overly active mind, and even when I was ‘relaxing’ — hanging out with friends, doing yoga — I was still running through to-do lists, thinking about work. The fatigue that can come with that is hard to crawl out of. The mindfulness exercises are helping me take an actual brain break. Even if just for 15 minutes, putting a punctuation mark on the end of a long day feels healthy for me and for my work.” Professor Weiss stresses to the class that mindfulness is “democratic.” Whatever negative or positive thoughts or emotions arise, mindfulness is equal opportunity awareness, able to go anywhere we do, open to whatever is happening, able to pause and respond more wisely.
