Nothing on your mind

leave a comment »

I came across following quote in an article about David Allen

Allen says his goal is to be free from worrying about anything he has to do. His techniques allow him the pleasure of having, much of the time, nothing on his mind. “People are afraid of the void, afraid of negative space,” he says. “But having nothing on your mind is one of the most awesome experiences.

CalmThis quote was very relevant for me in my current context. After I started following GTD, there came time when there was “Nothing on my mind” and it actually scared me. I had never imagined such a state of mind. But soon I realized that this was a good thing. It allowed me to think of more things to do, take on more challenges, to improve myself in certain areas, and learn new things. After all, this is what the blog is all about.

Thanks to Rich Dahlgren for the image
