"You've probably already noticed that the mind needs a certain kind of balance. Of focus on the one hand, and yet a sense of ease or relaxation on the other. If you focus too hard, the meditation feels a bit uncomfortable and tight. On the other hand, if you relax too much the mind tends to drift off into thought and you might even find yourself falling asleep. So just notice today how much effort you're actually applying to the technique." Day 4 of Headspace 10

This is very fitting for the exact method I've been thinking about for real life mind working. I think I'm normally trying too hard. I definitely hold on too tightly and there's no space for flow.

For the job:

Act like I am a consultant. I am a consultant. They will tell me more about the job and I will tell them more about myself and how I would go about meeting the needs of the job. And then we'll see if there's a good match and we should work together.

I have a lot to offer. I am competent. I do learn fast. I can do this job.

They messaged me because they think I am qualified enough. The job desc doesn't even list that many job qualifications. I have all of them. I can do this.

It's like when I'm an MC. Everything is calm cool and collected. Everything is fun. We're all friends here. And I want to help you have a good time.

Breathe. Relax.

This is not be all end all.

This could even be seen as fun.


So my brain is still not entirely on board. But that's okay. It still feels jigsaw-esque. Things aren't all into place. And the trains aren't moving very smoothly. But I can do this. Okay back to the reviewing.
