Do One

Do One

I came across this funky Portuguese proverb on one of my social feeds that offers a simple recipe for success:

“Think of many things. Do one.”

Simple and powerful. 

At any point, our heads are crowded with lots of thoughts, ideas, and issues, all jostling for our attention and focus. 

Just like a heart’s job is to pump blood and a lung’s job is to pump air, our mind’s job is to think. So expecting our mind to do anything different ( like not having thoughts!!) is silly. 

It’s ok to let thoughts flow through and resolve themselves. What is crucial, though, at any point, is to focus all action on that one important thing without allowing all the other thoughts to distract us.
