Focused on expanding my horizons the last couple of week by reading about some topics that I am not familiar with. One I focused on was the concept of being awake, living in the moment. Being awake you say? But I am awake 12+ hours a day you say!
Are you really awake or are you just going through the motions? Do you live in the past, present and future all at the same time? When you are engaged in a discussion, are you thinking about something that has previously happened or other things that you need to do? Or are you truly focused in the moment with all attention on that one idea, thought, person or event?
- Focus solely on what you are doing – this will not be easy at first but keep trying
- Look people directly in the eye and listen hard to what they are saying – As my friend Brendan says, God gave you two ears and only one mouth, so listen twice as much as you speak
- Give the gift of attention – focus on the present/the moment
I will spend more on this topic moving forward. If you want some further information now, please visit http://freedomfromtheknown.com/living-in-the-moment/
And for you music lovers, let’s go to a song that you can sing and remember as you embark on your new journey of focus.
Enjoy the day and your new found focus 🙂 Wake up!
