Dear Pet Lover,
Do you have a mind like water?
In karate, there is something called “mind like water” – which implies being in perfect readiness.
David Allen in his fine book, “Getting Things Done” describes this process like this:
“Imagine throwing a pebble into a still pond. How does the water respond? The answer is, totally appropriately to the force and mass of the input; then it returns to calm. It doesn’t overeat or underreact.”
Allen goes on to say a bit later, “Anything that causes you to overreact or underreact can control you, and often does. Responding inappropriately to your email, your staff, your projects, your unread magazines, your thoughts about what you need to do, your children, or your boss will lead to less effective results than you’d like. Most people give either more or less attention to things than they deserve, simply because they don’t operate with a “mind like water.”
(David Allen, Penguin books p11)
This to me is a fabulous reminder to be in the present – as I suggest every day to those on my 5:15 AM accountability call – when we are present – our minds can be more like water. Ready to receive appropriately what comes our way. Also – using our mind to know that we will react in a right manner is also key, which we have been discussing since the first of the year.
Today I give you a call to make your “mind like water” as you move into your day and week.
It doesn’t matter if it’s March, or November – the same principles work – it’s how we think, being present and planning or reflecting, or allowing.
As we begin this third month of this year – it’s a great time to work on getting our “mind like water” so we can accept and respond to all the forces coming our way.
Use this! Adore you!
