Thinking holds back doing.
A simple 1,2,3…go is all it takes.
Then staying completely present and focused on the thing you are doing, removing distraction, staying away from the mind and being completely immersed in the task.
Deep work requires deep focused consciousness, if you are in your thoughts, then the mind will sabotage and tempt you to distractions.
When thought comes, we can choose to witness it and let it go or we can choose to respond. When we respond to the voice in the head, then it is energised and a stream of thought will develop, pulling us away from what we are doing.
Our best work comes when we are fully in the moment and just simply observing our thoughts.
