FocusWe start each day with the best of intentions, and often – by the end of that day – we can hardly say where the time went. What happened? The short answer is we got distracted: In the moment, something else seemed more important than what we intended; or, an incident occurred that left us feeling angry, dejected, worn out. Either way, the day is gone and we’re not much closer to our goal than we were in the morning.

Must this continue? Is there nothing we can do to make better use of our time and attention?

In this talk, Br. Shankara discusses how and why we get distracted, frustrated and confused, and what we can do to live each day more calmly and effectively.
