It was said Jerry Seinfeld did it. And was extremely successful because of it.

Nowadays we can hardly imagine ourselves without running from one task or appointment to the other. If not, then certainly our heads are locked into our phones as we are transitioning from one activity to the next.

How about this? Doing nothing. Even better; scheduling yourself in to . . . do nothing.

Right. You heard me. Taking the time to sit without distractions in order to get some real thinking done. No phone. Maybe even no music. Just you and your head.

Why on earth would I do that, you ask? Maybe to put some space between you and the ‘next thing.’ Maybe to gain some perspective, to get out of the trees in order to see the whole forest. To take a breath. To allow the natural state of flow to come . . . or not.

Maybe just ‘to be’ instead of always doing.
