Getting unstuck from the everyday

Packed_Lunch_by_Mark_Robinson

It’s super easy to get caught up in the sticky web of distraction with two major consequences:

  1. We get diverted from our most important work – where we can have the most impact
  2. We close down and start to behave in a reactionary, automatic way without the full toolbox of choices available to us

While it’s hard to catch yourself in the moment, we can set a few alarms to go off throughout the day to trigger the following 2 questions:

  1. Am I doing my most important work right now? If not, how can I get to it asap?
  2. Am I behaving in a way which I would be happy for those I most love and admire to see?

These questions – or variations of them – can be helpful tools to course correct us. They can help to steer us back towards the kinds action and behaviour which will truly serve us in the long term.
