Network Marketing Skills - The myth of multi-tasking.... now is the secret to reaching your goals!
If we are truly in the moment, living purposely and in the now... how can your attention be on more than one thing at a time! You can only think one thing in any given moment, you can string a bunch of different ideas together but you can only have one thought at one point in time. The only reality is the instant you are living now, past and future are only memories and projections... they are not real.
This idea that multi-tasking is a myth, something I have been claiming to do all my life, really made me think and in an instant made me free!
I have been saying how I am not good at delayed gratification but really I am very good at it. I dream of what I want in the future but since I can't have it today I continue to do what little I think I can to enjoy today. I fondly remember the past and want to keep it alive but don't seem to move on. The programming that I can only dream and not have any part of it now is still there.
It makes perfect sense. Living in the now means I do what I can now to live my dreams. The goals and dreams of the future need to live now in order to have life, we need to enjoy them in the now because now is what is real.
A long time ago I did an outward bound course in the Rocky Mountains. I was 150 lbs over weight and not in great shape. I loved to rock climb but only done it on a small scale. Soon I was carrying the least amount of stuff and last to catch up. All my energy was focused on right then, putting one foot in front of the other. I had no money worries, no thoughts of relationships that weren't going the way I wanted them to, just that moment. I loved every torturous minute of it and never felt more alive as I did on that trip. I was focused on the now.
As an artist, when I am working and totally absorbed in the project, I am living in that moment. Working on a project feels just like meditating. Think about the last time you were working on a project or doing something with a loved one and it felt like you and your loved one were the only ones on the planet, you are totally absorbed in the project or the person. Nothing else existed... you were in the now.
Living in the now means enjoying the moment. Right NOW on this point in time I have all I need and life is perfect. I can have what I imagine and can enjoy the dream now because if I imagine it now it is real. It will come true because it exists NOW!
So next time you feel you are not getting what you want fast enough, think about what you are concentrating on. Are you dwelling on what you want from the standpoint of not being able to have it? Or are you celebrating the idea that you are living it, that you are one step closer and enjoying the journey. Be appreciative of what you have now and look for ways to enjoy the moment. To use an old saying, take time to smell the roses and you will give your dream life and your life will be a dream!
