Maintaining a direction for our life keeps us centered and brings meaning. As distraction is our default, reset your motivation several times during the day, to stay focused. Start the day with setting your motivation. End the day by reviewing your day from the perspective of your motivation.

Paying attention to our motivation helps to redirect our often chaotic actions towards the direction of enlightenment. Enjoy HH as a young man.
