It’d probably be faster to name the wildly successful people who don’t meditate. In almost every field – whether it’s art, sport, science or business – supernova outliers all have this in common: they sit quietly for a few minutes every single day.
Steve Jobs said meditation helped him see the big picture. Novak Djokovic and Michael Jordan use it to block out distraction and find their ‘flow’. David Lynch, Oprah, LeBron James, LinkedIn CEO Jess Weiner, Tim Ferris, even the Richmond Football Club – they all do it.
