With reference to swimming in the moment, some time ago I posted on Twitter (@bgdtcoaching) the following: “Swimming in the sea of change is better than drowning in the ocean of denial”.
Swimming in the moment, ideally in the sea of change as opposed to the ocean of denial, presupposes an ability to not only paddle about or merely float as it were in the present, but more specifically to be able to propel ourselves in a desired direction.
The waves of life impact constantly on the water in which we find ourselves swimming in the moment. On occasions these might be viewed favourably by us. They move us forward with ease towards our goal or destination. Then again, at times they capture us in turmoil and confusion.
Moving on with the idea of swimming in the moment, a series of simple questions may be worth a few minutes of contemplation.
How have you coped with challenges in the sea of change over these past few months? What will it be like to accomplish your main objective for this year? Finally, what is the key learning you can take from swimming in the moment as you move ahead now with your projects?
