So, this is what makes most people never get to where they want to be. It’s why many people never get into a flow. It’s because they aren’t able to concentrate.
Once you understand the simplicity of flow, you will see how easy concentrating can be. Once you start working with a kaizen approach (a incremental process), you will see that it’s not difficult to stay focused. The biggest time-zapper is the inability to concentrate—or the ease of becoming distracted. And, I know how easy it is to get distracted. There’s this huge thing that you want to do, but you can’t seem to stop scrolling through Instagram? Or, you know that you should be researching how to make an impact with your writing, but you just remembered that you need to go food shopping.
Whatever it is, distractions are always there.
The key is to recognize them and become the one in control to shut down your distracting mind—if even for that hour of Kaizen time. Knowing that distractions (or resistance) will always be there is the first step in moving beyond them. No, it’s not easy. But, who doesn’t want to be in a flow? Flow feels good. And with enough mastery over your methods, you can always feel that good.
