Ohhh I like this, I might have to rethink how I approach some things. I really like the idea of focusing on the process instead of the goal because if I focus on the goal the steps to get there can feel overwhelming, but if my focus is on each step, I can do those without worrying whether I've achieved the goal right off the bat.

Seems like he's someone we should think about." - Dave_LF

Nice. I find it rather interesting to watch things filmed pre-COVID. It's like from another lifetime; going out, hanging with friends in public places, eating out. How novel!! :P

This was interesting, perhaps moreso because it was entirely different than what I was expecting. I am mulling over his bit about recording yourself at the end. He's right about what my brain's reaction would be initially. I am wondering what it's reaction would be after 30 days. I have some theories and they don't all align with his results.

Not strictly a mindfulness video but seemed appropriate here as a kind of philosophy.
