They say we can’t do it – multitasking – that is. The human brain truly focuses on only one thing at a time. Imagine yourself fully engaged in “just this moment” or “just this activity”:
- Now I am lighting this candle.
- Now I am creating this tidbit.
- Now I am taking a drink of coffee.
- Now all of my attention is with this person on the phone
What would be possible in each now moment? What richness would we notice? What would it feel like to be fully present now? Today, take the “now moment challenge” and practice directing all of your attention to “this one thing”. Just practice. Even as I’ve been writing, my attention has wavered so practice I will!
What power is present in full focus?
