Wisdom 2.0 Highlights One
Category : Wisdom 2.0
Some year ago, a student was sitting with his teacher when the teacher received a much anticipated letter from an old friend. Knowing his teacher had been waiting a long time for the letter and must have been very eager to read its contents, the student started to excuse himself.
“Stop,” the teacher boomed. “Please stay. I will open the letter later.”
“Don’t you want to open the letter now?” the student inquired, surprised. “I know how long you’ve waited for this letter and news form your friend is right there in the envelope.”
“Yes,” said the teacher, “I have waited long, but I cannot open the letter until I have conquered the haste i felt. Once that has run its course, I will open it.”
Here is my take on it, in a busy world, multitasking is a must, and how you handle and prioritize things, projects does really matter a lot. But have you ever prioritize your consciousness? Driven by haste, we unconsciously switch channel , email, cell phone etc. and jump from doing one report to other. Do you think how much of our mind can juggle at one time consciously? The answer is only one. So do prioritize your consciousness skillfully as we shift from one action to anther.
One at a time my friend, one at a time.
