I start every day the same way. With silence. And that is one of the secrets to my success I am quite sure.
I do my cardio in the gym gazing over Biscayne Bay. Or I jog along it, with no headphones. I never turn on the TV in the daytime (or that often at night) and I don’t even put on music until 1 or 2 in the afternoon.
I never room with other guys on my team at softball tournaments, because it seems everyone immediately turns on the TV the second they walk into a hotel room. Many people do the same thing at home. This busyness distracts your mind and concentration and makes you anxious.
Quiet time lets you reflect and is quite conducive to critical thinking. And it calms your being, which lets you operate at a higher consciousness. It’s critical to create some quiet time every single day. So how are you doing with this?
