Simplicity  &  Flow
Simple
Simple  doesn’t mean easy
Lots of things are simple….
examples:
Want to  Lose   weight?
Eat  less…
… exercise   more
Want  to save  money?
Make  a  budget… $2000/month Rent $250/month Food $120/month Power $80/month Phone/cable $55/month Fun
Stick to it…spend   less
Want  to pass  a test?
Take   notes….
… study   hard
It’s not rocket science
It’s simple.
But simple…. doesn’t mean easy.
Simple…. can mean really really really hard work .
Why do we have  so much trouble doing  simple  things?
because:
We can be  lazy…
we develop bad habits…
and we don’t like change.
But…if you want to change
How do you break  bad habits?
Replace  them with  good  habits.
It’s a mindset change
I’m not a smoker…..I’m a jogger I’m not a spender…..I’m a saver I’m not an overeater…..I’m healthy I’m not shy…..I’m confi...
Sound simple?
It is….
but it’s hard
Want to get good at  simple   things?
Eliminate distractions
on just  one step at a time
Give it  100% of your attention
Keep a positive outlook
Sound simple? Enough already!!! We get it- it’s not easy.
Our brains are on fire
Millions of thoughts firing through our brain every second….
The magic   lies in  calming your mind   so that it can   focus   on just the   one thing   at a time.
Think  meditation
Just sit… focus on breathing….   and think of nothing.
Sound simple? Right- not easy.
Time to remodel your brain… and change your ways of thinking
 
Practice   simple things
Get good  at them
Give it  100% of your attention
It’s called getting into  the ‘flow’
What happens when you’re in the ‘flow’?
You become immersed  in the experience
Clear your mind
It becomes  unconscious
Your  existence  is temporarily  suspended
Stress  will melt  away
Time  will  stop
it becomes  automatic
Nothing else  matters…
You’re in the  ‘flow’
Happiness  and  fulfillment  follow
Watch out…
It’s  addictive
To get more:
Create an environment   without  interruptions
Work on something you are  passionate  about…
Something that is  meaningful  to you
Make sure it’s  challenging….
… and you have the  skills  to do it
Clarify what you want to  accomplish
Do it  well
Create a sense of   serenity
Calm  the voices in your head
Make it part  of your  routine
Got it?
Do simple things well.
Get into the flow.
Enjoy  life.
