Do Nothing, with Rob Dube

Aug 29, 2018


Rob Dube is the President of imageOne, a company considered by Forbes as “one of America’s Best Small Giant Companies” in 2017. imageOne is focused on what they refer to as document lifestyle management which ties in with the donothing™ movement which he has started via his book by the same title. Rob has been an avid meditator for over 14 years.

What you’ll learn about in this episode:

  • How valuable brief periods of meditation can be during stressful work days, even if you only have a few minutes to calm your thoughts
  • How even larger, profit-focused companies can benefit from a culture of care – caring not only about your employees, but about your customers, your community, and the world as a whole
  • The power of simple interactions and leadership practices that can emphasize this culture of care and ultimately make a big different (listen for some great examples!)
  • Allowing for buffer time each day, especially for busy leaders who are trying to manage complex systems
  • How a “mindful minute” at the start of a meeting can actually create shorter, more efficient meetings
  • How these practices tie in with the donothing™ movement, which leaders can use to center themselves
  • The common sense behind donothing™ practices that can also help improve team strength and build talent in the company when used correctly by leaders
  • How, without taking enough time, it’s easy to make decisions out of anxiety or fear, which can often be disastrous for the company
  • Useful techniques for those who travel a lot and don’t want to be tired all the time
  • Other interesting ways to practice silence throughout the day, which can be very beneficial at work and at home
