What are you doing right now?

Is reading this post the best thing you could be doing? I hope so... <G>

Merlin Mann, over at 43Folders posts "Right Now, What Are You Doing?" noting how easy it is to be distracted by the web, social networking, etc. He illustrates a "fix" with a page that loads with his browser or tab-sets, that is an instant reminder that the path of distraction lies directly ahead.

That's true spiritually as well. It is easy to be distracted from the most important things by otherwise good things. They're just not the best things.

When your focus or attention begins to drift, Merlin suggests "Catch the drifting as it happens, refocus, then repeat as necessary."

That may be the best thing you do all day. In fact, repeat often enough, and it could change your life.
