“This guy’s walking down the street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can’t get out. A doctor passes by and the guy shouts up, ‘Hey you. Can you help me out?’ The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole and moves on.....Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up, ‘Father, I’m down in this hole can you help me out?’ The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on...... Then a friend walks by, ‘Hey, Joe, it’s me can you help me out?’ And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, ‘Are you stupid? Now we’re both down here.’ The friend says, ‘Yeah, but I’ve been down here before and I know the way out.'” I'm Kriss. I'm the Mindful Productivity Coach. I've been down here before, and I know the way out.
A lot of people feel lost in the world, aimless, adrift, and not getting anywhere worthwhile. One reason for this is that they haven’t thought about what they want to get out of their one wild and precious life. They haven’t considered setting goals for themselves. They’re on a journey with no destination, no way to actually get anywhere in life.
Most people, when they hear the word mindfulness, immediately think of meditation. Unfortunately, they then think of sitting in the lotus position chanting “Om mani padme hum” for six hours a day. And that’s certainly one way to do it. But for those of us who aren’t Buddhist monks, there are many, many more ways to meditate.
