On an average day, roughly what percentage of your thinking is redundant, unhelpful and repetitive? In other words it’s not necessary to your achieving anything that day.
And on an average day, roughly what percentage of your thinking is productive and helpful to your gaining the the most from your day?
Don’t get caught up working these percentages out, a rough estimate is enough.
Is your redundant, unhelpful and repetitive thinking greater than your productive and helpful thinking? If so, this is time better spent having space in your mind, rather than thought in your mind. Instead of giving those redundant, unhelpful and repetitive thoughts your time and energy, just be present with what is. Whatever you are doing, stay with it. Be with the activity, people, place, food, drink, fresh air etc. whatever it is be present with it.
After all, you don’t need to think anymore because you already know how much thinking is necessary to help you achieve the maximum from your day. Any more thinking is literally a waste of space, but worse still, it’s a hinderance because it gets in the way of your productive thoughts.
Stop gorging on those thoughts that are standing in the way of you making the most of your day. Remember the percentage of productive thoughts you said you needed to achieve the most in your day? Well that’s all you need.
Be more, think less. Make the most of your day.
