Meditation is about the process
Original Slogan: Don’t expect applause
Slogan 59 is about not being attached to the outcome. You don’t need applause for sitting and breathing for half an hour each day. There’s nothing to it! Just sit and breathe.
Writers: You won’t be congratulated just for writing something. If you expect applause, you’ll be disappointed. Writing, like meditation, is about the process.
Life is too short for trivialities
Original Slogan: Don’t be frivolous
Slogan 58 is about remembering to focus on things that really matter. Don’t waste your time on things that don’t help you to feel alive and present. Life is too short for superficial nonsense.
Writers: Prune your frivolous distractions and when writing, just write. Focus on what’s important in this moment.
