One of the most popular pieces I’ve written at lateral action is How Getting Nothing Done Can Make You More Productive, based on my experience of meditation retreats in a Buddhist monastery. This latest piece looks at the benefits of incorporating meditation into your daily routine, without having to disappear to a monastery in Tibet (or in my case Hertfordshire). Editor of The 99% Jocelyn Glei asked me to write about it after she saw me interviewed by the Wall Street Journal about how I established the habit of daily meditation. (Hint: it had nothing to do with willpower.)
Who’d have thought sitting doing nothing would attract so much interest?
Speaking of guest articles, I hope you’ve enjoyed the excellent contributions by our guest writers over the past few weeks. Expect more excellence from them (and others) in future.
And speaking of doing nothing, rest assured I’ve not forgotten the series on breaking through your creative blocks. I’ve recently been working on cool stuff behind the scenes for our members, but I’ll be picking up the series on Monday and tackling another of our readers’ creative blocks… stay tuned!
