Experiment: Once in a while, I will present you with an experiment the goal of which will be to learn a little bit about yourself. They will most likely be very simple, but if you decide to do them and really take them seriously, you just might discover something interesting/useful/surprising... Have fun!
The experiment this week, if you choose to do it, is to become aware of all the thoughts that come to your mind on an hourly basis or more to the point, minute by minute. Here I am talking about the thoughts that do not specifically relate to work or life planning.
Notice your constant mind-chatter.
Become aware of the thoughts, positive or negative, that keep going round and round.
Become aware of the thoughts that undermine your every move.
Become aware of the thoughts that are supporting you, if any.
Notice them. Write them down. All of them.
During the whole day, for a week.
At work. At home. On the road. At the gym...
Listen to what you tell yourself.
Come back next week for the follow up to experiment #1...
and for experiment #2!
