Pardon if I sound repetitive. But after a long day of dealing with people, I sometimes forget the simplest things.
What’s so interesting about this? Well, when I’m in a meeting or watching a video stream online, I have to constantly scroll down and check my email. I have to remind myself about what’s happening in the video stream, and that I have to be present for it. I have to remind myself about what’s happening in the meeting. And, I have to remind myself that I don’t have to be present for every meeting.
What I mean by that is, if we all were on a day-to-day basis, we wouldn’t be able to do these things. Our behavior would be automatic and completely predictable. It would be very hard to even notice that we are doing these things. Our habits are what make us who we are. We don’t have to think about it, we don’t have to make a conscious effort to be present, and we don’t have to think about the things that we do.
It’s the same with blogging. To be honest, I’m not sure I get it.
It’s because we have a habit of never thinking about how we behave. Every time we meet, we think we have a plan and then realize we dont. We are constantly checking to see if the plan was successful before we do anything. But when we are fully present, we can actually be fully present and do things we never thought we could do.
We can be fully present and achieve our goals when we choose to be. We can’t do this when we are out in the world and do things by coincidence. Every time we do something that is not the way we do it, we are not fully present and we lose the ability to be fully present.
We can take the time to reflect and think about how we can be more present. This doesn’t mean we have to stop trying to be more present all together. We can think about how we can put more time, thought, and effort into being present. We can even create a little time out of nothing.
In our opinion, it’s important to put in more time, so we can fully be present. You can’t get to be fully present if you only have five minutes to yourself.
