One definition of Zen is ‘doing one thing at a time’ – which helps explain why Zen masters look so calm and live so long!
If you cannot find the time to take this advice, we certainly can continue day-trading while we text our friends, stack our paperwork on every surface of your homes and offices and forget to water our Bonsai until it appears more like cactus.
While we appreciate the fact that we will never achieve that perfect balance, let’s try to do that ‘one thing’, perhaps once a week to start. Take the hour long walk, leave phone at home, ~ the genuine R and R you enjoy will help everything else that day flow. Imagine a look of a Zen master … imitate it like you mean it!
