This Skip Channel is created so that you subconsciously ignore the stuff that’s already in there! The skip channel is what makes you bored of things. Your mind already has had enough of it. The problem is, what if you’ve never applied the idea that your mind created a skip-channel for!? What if you simply acknowledged it inside your brain and never put it into action?
So, if you ever thought these self-improvement ideas were lame and never needed your attention, think again. These little ideas could actually turn out to be life-changing.
1. Start Small – Starting is always tough, especially when your mind brags about the bigness of it. Make your tasks smaller. If you feel like procrastinating even then, break them further. Break them so small you’ll want to start and finish instantly. But you know what, once you start, you mind won’t want to stop. One small success will bring in desire for more of it.
2. Take Step Small – Starting is important, but so is finishing it. Don’t try to leap. You’ll either make mistakes or simply get distracted from your original goal. Instead, take baby steps. Hack into your mind by telling it that the task isn’t too big and it could get things done with minimal effort.
3. Form Habits – Well, turn the above two ideas into habits. According to a research conducted at Duke University, over 45% of your actions are based on habits. So, stop trying to inculcate all at the same time and form a listed few habits that can help your mind settle easily. This way, your mind will have automation strategies it won’t have to worry about so that it will be able to focus on other better things.
4. Trial & Error – Every achievement happens with effort. It took over decade of work for a company like Apple to reinvent the phone. They tried, tested, made errors, rectified them and out came a sleek piece of designed engineering you’d love to hold night and day. Keep trying and rectifying. This is how it works!
5. Focus – Simple quantum physics :P, energy flows where attention goes. If you’re frustrated, overwhelmed or stressed, that’s because your focus is bifurcated. Your mind is giving out confusing opinions about something. A focused mind is at peace. And that’s exactly what happens when you meditate; you guide your focus to peace.
