Are you faced with a complicated matter or uncertain how to process one? At least for a little while, do nothing.
Don’t worry about rushing to a decision that you may regret later. Remember that it is okay to do nothing for a little time.
Our subconscious brain is more robust than our conscious. When we find time to quiet (and make certain you do) our brain will help sort the problem. Thus, prompting us with our best choice.
Think of those “aha” moments you get at the strangest times. They may come relaxing before bed, sleeping, while you are in the shower, or anywhere else you feel relaxed. These are examples of the power of the subconscious mind. Digging deep into the subconscious mind (which can happen unintentionally) exposes a vast array of possibilities to any situation.
Try to find and re-create those moments when you captivate this power of doing nothing. Again, your moment to shine might be in the shower. You could also do your best thinking while sleeping and dreaming. Perhaps these moments you spend listening to heavy metal music. No matter what provides you with the best opportunity to thrive, get yourself into the zone from time to time.
This advice is not an excuse for carelessness or laziness. In time, we must do something. Just be certain to give yourself enough time to live with no regrets. You won’t disappoint yourself with the results when you make opportunities to think things through on a grand scale. Once in a while, do nothing.
