This simple story stuck with me throughout the whole trip. I was inspired to unpack it a bit. The more I thought about it, the more I feel that this mindset could be useful to me in my work and life.
Give this a try with me. Notice how you feel when you commit to being in control of one specific thing today. Then, at the end of the day, note whether or not it helped you be your intention. How was your inner dialogue during the day? How did it impact the resulting outcomes of your day? Did it inspire you to try it again the next day?
