I want to make a quick throwback to Day 46 and playing the game of Switching Attention (every 20 mins). It was AMAZING, brilliant and revelationary. Every 20 mins, I would either sit down and work on one pre-noted chunk of work; or get up and do something physical. I had the most productive day I’ve had in months. I went out jogging twice (for 10 mins each time – easy!). I cleared the house up. I got work done I had been dreading! It felt so fun and playful!! I would laugh every time the timer pinged again… “20 minutes already?!” It felt I could tackle a little bit of anything. And I did. My attention was under my command. I loved it.
So today. Briefly! It’s the beginning of a big week, with 3 bespoke training bookings, on M, W and F. And a funeral, alas, on Tuesday. Your words, dear wisdom of my soul…?
11.12 has always been good number for you.
Yes! It’s true. How shall I apply it today?
Continue playing Switch 20:20:20. The urge to zone in or zone out can be strong. Keep moving and re-intending, every 20 mins. At the start of each 20 minutes, you know what to do:
- Get up from your seat or sit down at it.
- Write in your planner how you intend to use the next 20 mins (this does not need a plan in advance – the mind knows What’s Next)
- Towards the end of the 20 mins, write your review… (smiley/sad face is plenty)
- When the timer pings, press ‘Repeat’
Ok, cool. But also, I have training to deliver this afternoon.
Use 20:20:20 to break up the training too. Every 20 mins, a switch of mode.
I didn’t write the training like that though…
Just keep an eye on the clock. Play the game with yourself… The participants will benefit. 🙂
Ok. I’m going to finish with 5 mins meditation and get up on the hour…
Excellent. Trust in this.
