A friend taught me recently that if you look at the other person’s elbow when you high-five, you’ll never miss. They’re absolutely right. How cool is that. Focus on something other than the desired result and you’ll get the thing you most want. So here’s the question: What’s the “high-five” you’re currently seeking? What is it that you most want to experience? Now instead of focusing on that shift your attention off the result and over to a part of the process. Remember the old chestnut Happiness is like a butterfly. If you chase it, it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it comes and sits quietly on your shoulder.
