Getting Better at Nothing

There’s always something going on.

Limitless entertainment in your pocket.

Busy is worn as a badge of honour.

Things you wish you were doing get put off until some day. Some day rolls around and then they get pushed back again.

Free time gets filled with stimulation.

Your ability to avoid it and take advantage of it on demand will decide how your future plays out.

How?

Get better at doing nothing. Sitting. Staring. Not even thinking. Breathing. Sitting. Staring. Nothing.

Why?

Because when you’re working, you want to be working. When you’re with your family you want to be with your family. When you’re being entertained, you want to be entertained.

Getting better at nothing means presence. It means you’re able to sit there and be content with what is.

And that’s a skill worth learning.
