Steve Jobs the founder of Apple went on meditation retreats every few months and even today at Apple the employees are encouraged to meditate during the day while at the office. Steve used meditation to clear his mind and focus and trust his intuition as that is how he often made business decisions. Jobs said, “If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there’s room to hear more subtle things — that’s when your intuition starts to blossom, and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before.”
