We’ve all experienced the mind that won’t let go of a problem.
It might be stress, a problem to solve, tomorrow’s presentation, or making the system show the way we want; we perseverate on these ideas well beyond their merit, and these concerns will surface at any moment.
But there’s a time and a place for everything. Perhaps it’s time to make dinner. To join in your life. To go grocery shopping.
Develop the habit of putting these ideas out of your mind.
When they start opening the door, slam it on their fingers, lock it and latch it and move on with your life. The problems, challenges, and presentations will still be there when you get back to them. They have to be- their fingers are stuck in the door.
That’s gotta hurt.
