Finding contentment when your head’s in the game
It’s easy to let the idea of contentment slip into the ether when you’ve got your head down on a deadline and are struggling to make all the right things happen in the right order.
That’s why it’s vital that you take time to stop, even for a moment, and see things for what they are.
If stopping for five minutes negatively effects your deadline, you’re already too late and if you’re already too late, what’s another five minutes?
Take that five minutes, step away from your work station, stretch, look out of the window and think about all the things that are going well for you right now. It may not feel like many, but I guarantee that there are some.
If you’re a religious type, give thanks to your God for the day He’s given you and the ability and dedication He’s filled you with to get this thing done.
If you’re not, just give thanks to the Universe for conspiring to make your life what it is.
Then get back to your work station, mind cleared and refreshed, and get stuck in again.
