Be in the Now, realizing that the only available and real moment is the present moment is the best way to live. Apart from the Now, the rest is just unrealized fiction and bad memories no one cares about.
To increase one’s focus on the now, we have to let go of distractions and options that hinder our thinking and create doubt and uncertainty in us.
The ‘decision hack’ to increase productivity is to not have too many distractions and options to choose from.
If we have a lot of actions and decisions to make in a long to-do list, every item suffers. The trick is to say yes to a few high priority items and say no to the rest.
Doing more than one task at once is completely anti-productivity. It is nearly impossible to concentrate on two tasks at the same time. This way of working is inefficient for focus and deep work. If you are doing shallow work like washing the dishes, multitasking works.
Whatever we focus on the whole day, we become.
If our plan is to become great at something, we simply need to watch what we do the entire day. If we are working towards our goal, then we will be fine. If we are watching the news and fiddling with the smartphone the entire day, we can forget about our goals.

The 'back shop' doesn't mean a room behind your workplace to take refuge. It is not a type of selfish, introverted withdrawal from family life, but the need to protect yourself from the pain that would come if you lost that family. It is a place to mend a broken heart, not by avoiding future pain, but by coming into a different relationship with it.
The promise of getting away from it all is a fool's errand since, wherever you go, you take yourself with you.
To be with yourself is a chance for a great companionship. Your soul has the means to attack and to defend, the means to receive and to give. The quality of your inner conversation will determine the quality of life.
