If you’ve been longing all week for today and then on Sunday you are dreading Monday, then it’s time to consider a change.
When you are at peace, doing something that brings you joy, then every moment of each day is the same, you want to be in that moment and not looking for the highs and dreading the lows.
Life is this moment and so is change. You won’t want to be elsewhere when you’re doing something that counts to you. If you want always to be elsewhere, when you get there, you’ll still have the same problems.
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.
