“Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.”

William S. Burroughs, 20th Century American writer and visual artist

Many people treat life decisions like a game show.

When posed with a critical question, they feel that they must buzz in with an immediate answer. If these answers aren’t instantly available, they often give up and move on to some easier ones.

Rarely does operating this way result in any significant insight or growth.

Taking our time and patiently wrestling with our more challenging issues is a proven method of building our mental muscles and resilience.


Where would a more relaxed and patient approach to life’s questions offer you more and better answers to the significant issues facing you?
