As I told you in a previous article, this year my focus would be to help busy people learn meditation.
Despite a huge increase in its awareness, meditation has yet to become main stream. Many people still consider it a thing for monks & elderly or at least something which should only be tried in spare time. In fact many people whom I met told me that they planned to learn meditation some day.
On asking when that ‘some day’ would come, almost all replied that it would come when their life would be more organized, less stressful and they would be having sufficient time to devote for meditation.
Given the fast pace of present day life and given the increasing web of complexities in the lives of most of us, I seriously doubt that most of these people would find time to meditate in the near future.
But I am a positive thinker. You can consider me an ardent fan of Norman Vincent Peale. So I am not ready to give up.
I sincerely feel and believe that no matter how tough or busy your present life is, you can still find some quality time for meditation.
From quality time I mean at least 20-25 minutes from your precious schedule.
I know it is not easy if you are really busy. But no matter how busy you are, you must remember this:-
“If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.” — JIM ROHN
Well, enough of my pontification. I know life is not that simple.
We all want to improve the quality of our life. Yet, the demanding and pressing circumstances of our home and work life leave very little time for us. This is a reality which we all must accept.
But again, there is always a way.
As my focus would be to help busy people in learning and adopting meditation as a part of their daily life, I will have to do something more than just plain talk.
For busy people, the only way to meditate is to find time from their busy and demanding schedule. And they can only do this if they make their present schedule more productive and start completing their tasks in lesser time.
If you make your routine more productive, if you start finishing your daily tasks in lesser time, if you can successfully automate your routine tasks, then in my opinion, you will be able to find time for whichever activity you want. In our case, this activity would be ‘Meditation’.
And I am going to help you in achieving that goal.
So here what I am going to do on this blog.
Starting from this week, apart from meditation, I shall be writing on various topics which affect the life of a busy person. I shall be writing on increasing productivity at home and office, automated tools, various management tips, helpful softwares, helpful books and other similar topics. This in my opinion would be a perfect help for those who are busy and unable to find time for meditation.
Let me tell you one thing, I have the first hand knowledge of how does it feel to be extremely busy in life. How does it feels to come late from office, completely exhausted in a state of total enervation.
I know it because I myself am living a demanding and busy life. Despite having an extremely tough work schedule, I have been able to find quality time for meditation only because of own self efforts to make my life productive and systematic.
In the coming articles of this blog, I am going to share with you the art and science of finding time for meditation.
So keep reading.
