My thoughts then turned to how much I love the sound of silence, which thought took me to my next … I wonder what are the optimum conditions for all of us in creating our business to love? One of the questions for me is how can I get more of the sound of silence into my life today, tomorrow and always?
Here’s a simple test: Take twenty minutes off and write down your best idea of how you would like to be working, how it would look, feel, smell, touch, sound. Use the first ten minutes of your allotted time to get a really great and rich fantasy going and document it. Then use the remaining time to compare your current reality. How far adrift are you?
Ask yourself what you could do, little by little, every day to move at whatever speed you find appropriate towards your glittering vision of the ideal business or work scenario.
It will suffice to have that vision there in your awareness – it will magnetically attract you towards it anyway but you will accelerate your progress if you ask yourself once a day:
- What did I do today to take me towards my vision?
- What can I do tomorrow to take me still closer?
- What can I do now that will give me a flavour of living life as if I were already there?
And then let me know.
