Full Attention

Today was day 20 of my 4 mile-a-day run streak. Feeling a little spent after a speedy point to point 5.5 run on Sunday, but got it done regardless.

So much of all this, of anything during a global pandemic, is about being in the moment. If I think too much about all the miles before today, or how many more I have to go, it won’t do me any good. I believe there’s tremendous value in focusing on each step – literally – and counting breaths. I don’t do this 100% of the time, but when I find myself getting too lost in my head, I’ll bring it back.

Same goes for work; too many notification from email, Slack, texts… shut ’em all off, and focus on the one task at hand. Not only will it get done quicker, but it will be done better, because it had my full attention.
