"If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there would be a shortage of fishing poles!" - Doug Larson
Those are some very profound words! There is nothing that draws me into deep thought like a mindless task like fishing. Once I've mastered what it takes to convince my prey to consume the bait I'm offering, my mind has the opportunity to venture elsewhere. It's amazing what your mind can process when it's not overwhelmed with the daily grind. It's critical to personal development to take the "me time" required to empty your head of the nonessential, and ponder your purpose.
"Everybody can be great...because everyone can serve. You don't have to a college degree to serve. Your subject and verb don't have to agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, and a soul generated by love."- Martin Luther King Jr.
Also profound words, worthy of that mindless thought time you need to make available to yourself to achieve your purpose. If we are caught up in the mundane, and that consumes our essence, we don't have time to serve others and reach our purpose. Take that quality time to come to the understanding of what that purpose is!
If you don't first think it, it can't come to fruition.
Results require focus, focus comes from thought, and thought is inspired by those quiet times when you can concentrate on what's important. You have to close out the world so it doesn't capture you attention and steal that special time when your alone with your thoughts.
