November 2015 Newsletter
Hello, and a luscious lovely November to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter.
In the photo above I'm in a tropical environment, loving the
warmth and the beauty of Nature. Are you enjoying whatever
natural scene is near you?
Today's issue has an article on how trying too hard may be
counter-productive, to clearer vision or to anything else you want.
Vision: Are you trying too hard to see clearly?
From an early age many of us are taught to work hard to get
what we want. In school the good students are the ones who
strive, and those who don't seem to be trying, the
"slackers", are scorned.
You may have noticed yourself learning to do something new,
which didn't feel like it came naturally. You got
frustrated, felt "all thumbs". For me, this happens with
the hardware side of computers. Though I've spent
decades as a programmer, the cables and connectors
part of computer work is like a foreign land, which I don't
even want to visit! My limit seems to be putting more paper
in the printer. If I push and fight this sort of task, it's
even harder and more error-prone for me.
The "secret", which is no secret at all but took me a long
time to learn, is that I make better progress if I simply
hold the intention of the result I want, and keep slowly going
forward toward that goal. Recently I replaced my computer display
with a spare one, including hooking up the audio cable, and
connecting the display to a switch box for the 2 computers I
need it to support. This was a huge accomplishment
for me, even though it would have taken my engineer partner
(who was out of town) just a few easy minutes.
So my point is that striving and struggling didn't get me
far, and often got me upset. On the other hand, patiently
and methodically tackling the task at hand got me where
I wanted to go. This same kind of approach has helped
me with vision improvement.
When I started, I greedily devoured vision books, desperate
for "the answer" to fix my myopia. I did the
almost fiercely! Now I see my "vision improvement practice"
as a peaceful pleasurable
time. I can feel myself relaxing into it, rather than gearing
up for a test I might not pass. I am simply enjoying the
experience, not rating it. Why don't you give this attitude
a try with whatever you want to achieve?
To see more specific suggestions for turning your attitude
about vision improvement from one of work to one of play,
Have you wondered if my work could help you?
I'm now offering complimentary Discovery Sessions of about 20
minutes, for us to discuss what you're looking for in a coach,
and to decide whether you and I feel like a fit. To schedule
