I am increasingly aware of efficiency as a rhythm or way of doing and being that does not waste energy, at home, at work, or in creativity. Rushing anything is not efficient...I realized as I missed a stair and injured my foot - sure I would have liked to have had my online store filled by now, but all in due time. I am noticing that there is a zone of thought that gets things done with a feeling of effortlessness and I am working to cultivate that as a practice for living more fully on a daily basis - By the way, my lap top came back from repair today; I am relieved at this perfect timing - There are so many other factors affecting productivity. Those factors can be seen as so many daily distractions that on the surface would appear to take us away from what we would really like to be doing, but it is simply presence of mind, and attentiveness that makes the doing of anything of benefit.
I have found benefit in shifting attention from one activity to take a break with another, or shifting from sustained focus on something important or requiring creative thought to clearing my mind of its concerns with something mundane. That intentional presence in all things has been a great source of peace of mind. So many things have occurred lately through that peaceful confident state of mind, confirming for me that there are no coincidences. I just say thank you, as expected. When you think about it all the "coincidences" are a result of choices you have made coming back in an unexpected way as doors opened or problems solved. I have noticed that when things seem overwhelming and time seems limited for getting somewhere or doing something even though it may seem counter intuitive I slow down and take time with what is immediately in front of me and everything works out in its own time.
I think my next task is to seek out a book on business that fits with a more holistic approach. I am wondering what's out there, and taking feedback.
