How can you live smarter and be more creative? Asking the right questions can help you figure out what you need.
In other words, ask questions. This is one of the most important things to remember when you’re starting down life’s path. You will have to change your ways, but you will not be able to do it overnight. You will have to change your habits, but you will not be able to do it overnight. You will have to change your emotions, but you will not be able to do it overnight.
When you start asking questions, you will be able to see the answers before they are ready. Ask for the truth, not just for confirmation, and you can get the answers you need the moment you ask.
That’s what I’m talking about, because it’s easy to get caught up in questions of “what should I do?”. The problem with asking these questions is that they generally only serve to complicate things. The answers you get are often wrong or not exactly what you want, which is why you should always be careful to ask for the truth. By asking the question you are, in essence, asking yourself questions.
One of the best tools to help you live smarter and more mindful is mindfulness. If you’re like me, you’ll recognize that mindfulness means paying attention to your surroundings and your thoughts. It’s the same idea as meditation, except that mindfulness is more about self-awareness and not about focusing on a particular object.
Mindfulness is a skill that can be taught, practiced, and cultivated. If you have ever taught mindfulness before, then you know that it is a skill that can take many forms. You can do it in classes, on your own time, or with a friend. Your own practice can be done in your own home, but I find the best practice to be in a quiet place with a few things that you can focus on your breathing and not on anything else.
I have a friend who does this. She gets up in the morning, sits down in front of a blank screen, and just focuses on breathing and allowing her mind to wander. She finds that her mind is much less likely to wander when she does this. I like to get up in the morning and just do the same thing.
The other time I like to get up is when I’m in my office, and I usually have a few things I want to read or do. I tend to keep these things in a folder on my computer and they are usually things that I have to review to make sure I’m not wasting my time. If I’m not constantly on the computer, it’s easier to focus on my reading and so on.
I find that when I have my mind wandering like this, it is more likely to be productive. It is also easier to relax and let the ideas flow. If you can just keep your mind going this way, then you are less likely to get caught up in the details of the day.
One of the benefits of being on a schedule is that it makes it easier to read. By having something to do, you get to think about some of the things you normally skip over or procrastinate on. You probably have one of those books open in your lap and you don’t realize it because you are too busy reading, you are too worried about it. I think you are doing it wrong. So just stop and think of how much time you are wasting reading this book.
