I read an interesting article by Business Insider, “My 11-year-old son auditioned at Juilliard, and we both learned a lot about how top performers practice.”
As I read the article, I can’t help but ask, “How engaged are we really with our life? Our work?”
The reason why I’m asking is because I think many people merely cruise through life.
I realize that many of my achievements were made when I am actively engaged with what I am doing.
That means, I’m very conscious about what and why I’m doing something. It’s not automatic. Instead, I give active thought to what I am doing.
The results are different — If you are engaged, you do things more carefully. You complete the loop more thoroughly. And the results are better than if you’re mindlessly just going through the motions.
Think about it — are you engaging your life? And if you engage, don’t you think that life would even be more beautiful?
