For nearly twenty years I have made my way to the barn during rifle season. It's an easy place to go while enjoying so much. I park on one side, climb up the ladder, and walk to the other side where I'm sitting right now.
Sometimes when I get in traffic, especially when I'm sitting at a traffic light, I just zone out, i.e., I just let my mind wander and think about a challenge I'm facing in my business and the best way to approach it, or about how to best coach someone to move forward in listening to life, or something like that. I don't ever have to worry about missing a light change because the vehicle beside me starts moving or some kind person behind me blows the horn.
Do you ever do that? I'm sure you do; just kind of put your brain in neutral to the world around you and go to Maui or somewhere in your imagination? Recently I came out of my zone, went through the traffic light, and there in the turn lane beside me were five red vehicles in a row--the identical shade of red, one after another. And I thought to myself, "If I had been totally zoned out, I would have missed that unusual sight."
Avoid walking around zoned out. Wake up and pay attention to what's going on around you. You'll Live Positive much, much better if you pay attention to the world around you and make a life worth living.
