WARRIOR of The Present Moment

As creative warriors, our challenges in staying focused are well documented. We chase a lot of squirrels as we like to say. So what’s the difference then, between being focused, and being fully engaged? And how can we, with practice, train our minds to be our most productive? Let’s find out!

Thomas M. Sterner is the author of “Fully Engaged” and “The Practicing Mind.” He is accomplished as a musician, composer, and technician in various fields of music; as a recording and audio engineer; and in athletic pursuits from archery to golf. He speaks around the world on developing focus and discipline and lives in beautiful Wilmington, Delaware.

WARRIOR of The Present Moment

Focus is a result of being fully engaged” -Thomas Sterner

Highlights –

  • Being fully engaged is being completely absorbed in the moment
  • When you are fully engaged, your thinking thins out. The number of thoughts your mind produces are reduced
  • Reactive mode is one of disempowerment
  • Being fully engaged takes a lot of practice, with the conscious attention to learning this skill
  • When you understand it’s a period of repeating and refining, that’s what mastery is
  • When we master things, the execution becomes more effortless
  • The problem with a habit is there really is no conscious thought behind it
  • Ensure your past tasks or future tasks don’t interfere with your present, daily tasks
  • Put your learnings into what’s happening in the present moment
