Amazingly for Project Managers Multitasking and Mindfulness seems like opposites. "How can we talk about mindfulness in Project Management" exclaimed my friend, a Project Manager for more than a decade. Multiple things to do in a day. Managing the triple constraints, the team, the stakeholders and here we are including Mindfulness in Project Management dictionary.
Our brains are designed for serial nature. One thing at a time, one thought at a time. No matter how much we try the thoughts will flow through only one at a time. Like a train. Not only we have the power to control "that" thought but also the speed with which "that" thought is passing through our brain. Does that not make us powerful?
So why "Meditation"? Meditation not only allows us to slow down and watch the quality of each thought entering our mind but also allows us to watch the quantity or the number of them trying to pass through our mind. Meditation helps the train of thoughts not only to slow down in speed but also qualifies the thought. The old "Quality" v/s "Quantity" debate. Whatever method we use for meditation is irrelevant, whether it is watching the breath, chanting a Mantra or just watching the thoughts, trying to line up in a queue.
Living or working with "Mindfulness" also gets us into a state of mind where we move from a state of "Multi-tasking" to one task at a time with hundred percent focus and attention. Our brains are designed for one at a time. Research conducted at Stanford University found that multitasking is less productive than doing a single thing at a time.

What if Mindfulness helps to line the thoughts in the queue? Meditation allows the thoughts to space up. Create gaps. And Creativity just flows into these gaps, seamlessly.
