Are you #teamnosleep?
Do you celebrate beast mode?
Are you all about that hustle and grind?
I love my eight hours under the covers.
Although I will go all in, I don’t do beast mode. I’m not that aggressive.
And while some people like to hustle, I prefer to flow (movie reference for all you movie nerds out there).
I’ve found that the longer I hustle and the harder I grind, the more difficult my work becomes.
Sure I might get things done, but I don’t enjoy it.
When I take the pressure off and get into the moment of my work, then it seems to flow not from me but through me.
I’ve found lots of ways to get into that flow, but meditation is one of my top three most reliable tools to disconnect from the noise and connect with the words.
In this article for Nicole Dean, I share how meditation has made me a better writer and a better business owner. But don’t take my word for it. Nicole, Tim Ferris, Kelly McCausey, and a host of other experts also share how meditation has helped them achieve success in business and in life.
If you’ve tried meditation before and “failed” at it. I encourage you to give it another shot without any expectations at all.
If you’ve never tried it, I encourage to think of it in the way that best suits your lifestyle and your value system. For me, it’s a way to connect to myself, to my work, and to God.
Meditate for 10 or 20 minutes before your next writing session, and see how it affects your writing. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
