Two important words are the focus — mindful and intentional. Mindfulness is knowing the The Trickster is in all of us, and knowing when he’s at work in my head, and creating space for making choices about response. Taking action with intention is the second important word here. I didn’t know if the experiment would work.
Pursuing our best self is a considerable investment of time and energy. On top of all the commitments we have each day to our jobs, families, communities and so on, it’s hard to get significant blocks of time to do the hard, internal work.
