I went to Goa a few days back on a company holiday. It was a fun trip.
Although most of our time was spent chilling at the beach, we roamed around the area as well.
Once while returning from a beach, our van driver started playing music. Loud. Like really really loud.
I don't have any complaints about playing music but at that moment I was listening to my own list of songs on a pair of normal earphones. I couldn't make out a thing of what was playing on my playlist.
Focusing on one thing is hard but possible. I needed to focus on my playlist.
And I did just the thing. I focused. I focused hard.
In a few minutes, I was completely tuned out of the external noise and into my playlist. It's wonderful how problems have such simple solutions.
Life is the same. You'll receive a lot of information, a lot of noises on a daily basis. It's your job to focus on the things that matter to you and reject everything else.
You need to hone your senses.
