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 making the most of your day?
Don’t get caught up working out these percentages, 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 gets in the way of your productive thoughts, slowing down your daily progress.
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, most probably even fewer than that.
Be more, think less. Make the most of your day.
