You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine. John Maxwell
There is a Zen philosophy that says, “The way a person does one thing, is the way they do everything.” When I am aware of how I do the simple tasks in daily life, it gives me great insight into the life I am creating and why it is working for me or against me.
In this day and age our attention is constantly being pulled in a thousand different directions, and so it is often difficult to focus on the task at hand.
Taking time to be still and becoming aware of my thoughts and my attitude when I do everyday tasks is important, for eg: Am I rushing through these tasks? Am I resentful when I do them? Am I present and focused while doing them? Am I avoiding them or believe I don’t have to do them? This opens the door to a deeper understanding of my inner world and how that is reflecting in my outer world.
When I am fully present each day in everything I do, I learn to develop a clear and focused mind and begin to create an abundant life.
