Mindfulness is focusing on one thing in the present moment.  It is to simply allow oneself to experience the activity of the moment while excluding worries, self-doubts, and distractions.  Mindfulness is non-judgmental, avoiding opinions of good or bad.  It is also effective, focused on what works, rather than what is right or wrong.
