The thing about humans is that we are incredible time-travellers. We need no machines - we’re all over the place in our heads. We are SO good at time travelling, we rarely spend any time here. True! It’s the world’s greatest problem. Being able to be fully here for any significant length of time without being distracted by the next shiny thing ... Ooh shiney! So instead of just making a cup of tea you’re thinking about what you should have said to that woman this morning. You’re sitting with your partner and yet you’re back at work. You’re on the phone talking with someone yet trying to find that date when you’ll be free whilst making toast for your kids. You’re listening to someone yet you’re not listening - you’re already replying in your head.
We’re constantly half-arsing life. Trying to do at least two things at once, and all of them suffer for it.
Stress ends and life gets amazing when you show up for it. Showing up for it is completely related to your ability to:
1. do one thing at a time 2. give 100% attention to that one thing you are doing
It is that simple folks, I promise you!
Think about it - how good is that film when you’re also on Facebook, flicking through? Flick through Facebook or watch the film. Either / or - not everything at once. You can’t do it.
One thing at a time, give it your full attention.
Great stuff! Nice chatting with you, put that into practice, ok?
Go well! Arjuna
PS. A decent meditation technique, of course, gives you the ability to develop this one thing at a time approach to life. 100% attention means you can focus on what you want, and ignore what you don’t.
So very good. Here’s a free guide that I put together so you can master your mind and have more fun than ever before:
