Taming the mind
Another inspiring story illustrating the importance of mind over matter. Regardless of how good you get at mastering tasks, if you can’t settle and focus your mind, your skills will be of much less benefit to you. I have found the most difficult things to learn pale in comparison to mind matters.

The Mind
This story taught me that skills can be stronger if the mind is also tamed.

That was harder than I thought
Yep. It is really hard to stay in the present. But this is exactly what you need to do every night. Your brain moves too quickly and too slowly sometimes. So stay focused on right now. Lather. Rinse. Revitalize = night time feeling. edit. Finalize. Submit. = day time feeling. You just need to categorize things after they happen. That’s fine. Take your time.

This taught me that even if you have the skill set to do something it takes calmness and strength of mind to go that bit further in your life
