Zeroing Zone

Flow with whatever is happening and let your mind be free. Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate.

Here's your exercise for the day.

Get a piece of paper and a pen or pencil. Not a small piece, a good sized note pad will do. I'll wait here while you do that.

Ready? Good. Now beginning at the top, leave a space and then draw a solid line from the center of the top down to the center of the bottom of the page. Next draw a line from the upper left hand corner, again leaving a space, down to the right hand corner, bisecting the line you just drew. Now this is the tricky part. Draw a line from the upper right hand corner, leaving a space, down to the bottom left hand corner, but making sure that it crosses the other two lines at exactly the place where they meet. Got it?

Okay. Now next to the place where those three lines meet draw an arrow pointing to it.

Now on top of the center line write the word ME, on top of one of the other lines write the words MY LIFE, and on top of the third line write the words MY CAREER. Your career is whatever you do that puts something good into the world: a lifetime enterprise, a job, a family a garden, etc.

What you have here is three roads, so somewhere on the page, but not near the arrow, write VIA, the word for road.

And since there are three of them, somewhere else on the page write the word for three, TRI.

Now next to the arrow put them together and write the word TRIVIA.

Every single thing you do, no matter how insignificant it may seem, every moment you spend, including the reading of this sentence, is important to you, your life and your career, all three. It's vital.

It's trivia - the crossing of three roads.
