Try not to think of anything, and thoughts race wildly. Allow the mind to do whatever it wants, and thoughts slow down effortlessly.
This is the power in giving your mind space to express itself.
Force people to think a certain way, try hard for certain outcomes: these make our goals more distant.
We’re always more effective when we’re not trying to be right. We’re more likely to win if winning isn’t the preoccupation. We’re calmer when we don’t forcing ourselves to be serene. We do more when we try less.
