Quieting the Mind leads to great decision making...with Kimberly Jonas. Kimberly Jonas is a self-employed spiritual coach and inspirational author. After being steeped in the corporate world for nearly 10 years as a project manager and art director, she left that world in 2002 to teach yoga, meditation and other mindful practices. Her corporate and spiritual worlds have been entwined ever since – she has owned a 30-employee spa and studio, has her own line of healing essential oils, and recently self-published three volumes of poetry. All while helping others to access their full potential through practices designed to quiet the mind and ignite inner wisdom. Quality Decisions Start with Quieting the Mind 1. In all of your business ventures over the years, do you feel like you've always worked from the place of a quiet mind? 2. We're talking about quieting the mind as a source of good decision making. Can you speak a little bit about how poor decisions come from an ?unquiet mind? so that we have a little more context? 3. With your experience in corporate America complimented by running your own enterprise, how have you used "quieting the mind" to make the best decisions? With your experience in corporate America complimented by running your own enterprise, when do you feel that ?quieting the mind? served you the most? 4. Can you help me to debunk this idea that you have to meditate for hours in order to have a quiet mind? I think the idea can turn people off because it feels like you have to undertake a bunch of major, involved practices to cultivate a quiet mind. 5. Do you believe it's possible to get to a point where the mind is always quiet? 6. Give an example of a decision you made that was not preceded by "quieting?" Moving to Colorado to work for a family owned business?
