01 May The Dare to Dream Podcast Episode 25: How Thinking Deeply Will Shape Your Habits
When was the last time that you set aside time for some meaningful introspection? Put another way, how often do you let yourself sit in your own thoughts guilt-free with no distractions, no multi-tasking, and no technology?
We often talk about making time to journal as a way to reflect. But in this episode, we discuss why we must make time to do nothing but contemplate who we currently are, who we want to become, and if we’re happy with how our actions are moving us closer or further away from that ideal future self.
In today’s fast-paced society, we often only consider these deeper questions during times of turmoil and struggle. We think about our relationships once one is going up in flames, or we decide to change our fitness habits only when we are no longer willing to accept the number that blinks back at us on the scale.
We don’t have to wait to hit rock bottom to make a change. That’s one way to take action, but there’s a better way.
From making technology-free daily walks a routine to exploring the benefits (and social costs) of doing sober months, we get specific on how our lives are being shaped by our goals and aspirations. If we’re proactive, we may start living the life of our dreams before life tells us to change by taking back our time and savoring every second.
On a recent episode of Chris Williamson’s Modern Wisdom podcast, Williamson claims that sobriety is both a productivity tool and the best competitive advantage currently available. This claim definitely got our wheels turning and inspired much of this episode.
Join us for personal anecdotes, deep questions, and a lot of laughter!
