With so much going on at DevCon–and so many friends to catch up with–it can be tempting to put yourself on auto-pilot for the whole conference, just reacting to what’s around you.
You can feel a little aimless that way. And you can miss things. You’ve sacrificed a lot to be here so double-down on that commitment: join the DevCon Meditation Challenge and see what it does for you.
Folks who take up the challenge will take time to meditate on their own, for two eight minute sessions each day. You can do this whenever you want but we’d suggest before breakfast and after the day’s last session.Sitting down (anywhere) and simply watching your breath is great. You might also lightly think about an open question like “How can I share what I’ve learned?”
I think you’ll find yourself refreshed and refocused: ready to dive into example files, blog some stuff, or hit the bar. Get the most you can out of this DevCon: tweet “I’m In #FileMakerDevCon #MeditationChallenge” to join us and encourage others.
Take this practice home after DevCon and you may be surprised what you can accomplish.
