Easiest way to beat distraction

Do you often see yourself huddling with waste thoughts?

You decided to stay focused, and five minutes later you are scrolling endlessly?

Happens with you?

We would have read hundreds of texts and literature on how to change that, and of all those, one has been the most effective: To always keep listening to motivational audios or read such books. I personally have started doing it morning and evening, and the results have been way better.

Now stretching it to four hours a day while working on mundane activities.

Not because it will give me motivation to act, rather because we are accustomed to act in a manner consistent with what we hear and whom we spend time with. Since what we hear and whom we spend time with isn’t something wonderful in today’s world, why not start with doing it on purpose?

Any habit that we form on purpose is what we reap benefits of without waiting for. Always.

When I couldn’t help my Mom…

There was one instance last week, where my Mom needed my help.
And I couldn’t.

More so, I’m glad I couldn’t.

Here’s why:

I do not have membership of any OTT: Netflix, Prime, Hotstar – none.
This is something that I’m proud of – for saving hours of my precious time.

So last week when my Mom missed an episode of a serial, she asked me to search for it in Hotstar app.

And lo’ an behold, as much a techie I am, I couldn’t search for it! Tried and made errors, still no success!

A beautiful example of why ignorance is bliss and superpower sometimes.

While my Mom managed to forgive me, I just loved this non-awareness of mine.

Our mind, of course, is a beautiful garden that doesn’t deserve the seeds of hatred from the TV.

Do you have such a weird habit?
