Imagine walking through the mall. On the left and right of the storefront displays we see all sorts of things that grab our attention, but we have a specific destination in mind and cannot become distracted by impulse.
It would take 86 hours to get through the mall if you only spent 10 minutes in each store.
The difference in how we think is being able NOT to take action on impulses. Remember, they are distractions keeping us from reaching our destination. Don’t be late! Notice them, maybe even appreciate their existence, but stay focused on the path ahead. Be aware how much the little things consume our time.
