I’ve been meaning to learn how to meditate for a long time. I’ve put it off for years. This notion of meditation as mental inbox zero was the point of no return for me. I am going to prioritize learning how to meditate now.
If you don’t know what inbox zero is, go read this before doing anything else.
I read about this idea here.
A long time ago I remember reading about David Allen’s idea that goes something like this:
Your mind is for having ideas, not holding them. – David Allen
Ironically this idea has stuck with me for years and I have found it invaluable. My mind is often relatively empty so I can be totally present with whatever I’m doing. Maybe you’ll find this idea useful too.
