The best time to practice mindfulness is while brewing a cup of tea. Every step requires focus. If you rush the process the tea is weak–Lose track of time and the tea becomes bitter.
There are some things in life and business that can’t be rushed. It requires your complete attention and dedication to the process. There are no shortcuts.
The difference between a novice and a craftsman, is the craftsman has embraced the process and has mastered each level. He or she understands the importance each step provides.
The novice rushes to find satisfaction in the finished product. The craftsman finds satisfaction at every stop along the path. The craftsman is a professional.
This is the secret of brewing tea. It’s learning to find peace in the process.
