My current favorite word is ‘Sadhana’. It’s translated to “dedicated practice”.
Sadhana, for me, is not merely about setting habits. It’s about devoting yourself to the practice of your craft with minimal attachment to the results.
We usually try to solve problems by thinking about them. This thinking transforms into overthinking. And soon enough, we are stuck in a rut that breeds anxiety and restlessness.
While strategizing is useful, overthinking isn’t.
During such moments, our Sadhana comes to the rescue. We experience a profound ‘letting go’. Instead of overthinking, we get our butt in the chair and start doing the work.
