A few weeks back I wrote a blog about taking time out to have solitude and one of my readers, who is just about to traverse the North West Passage from Greenland to Alaska via the Arctic Circle and the Bering Straits, sent me this quote by George Bernard Shaw …
“Few people think more than two or three times a year. I have made an international reputation for myself by thinking once or twice a week.”
So true, for many people they rarely think because they are always in doing mode. Going from one job to another in their highly demanding schedule of never ending tasks. For a number of people they avoid thinking, believing that the secret to life is to do stuff, be busy and avoid what really matters in their life. For others, they over think things.
There needs to be a balance. All of us are thinking all the time, every day, but how often are you channeling your thoughts into your goals, the obtainment of those goals, how you need to improve or what opportunities you need to explore? Most don’t think at all about these elements, people just do what is in front of them.
Here is a strategy I leant sometime ago that makes a world of difference in my life and business: Make a one hour appointment with yourself every week to plan, ponder, prepare or project yourself forward. If you and your goals are not worth an hour a week, then are you really serious about becoming the best version of you?

Thinking should not be as complicated as we think it is. The moment we start to think, be basic. When we over do it, it, it makes us worry and may just make everything worse than it actually is. When we start to think, let us consider one thing above all - is it the right time. Let us know. Book online with Healthkit
