60 Mindful Minutes

Feb 21, 2023

Reflect back on the last hour of your thinking and consider how many of those thoughts you created on purpose. If you’re like most of us, you’ll likely see that much of your thinking gets produced without your direction, and often outside of your awareness. This week, Thomas Sterner shares insights from his book, It’s Just a Thought: Emotional Freedom through Deliberate Thinking. Throughout his career, Thomas has been exploring methods for thinking, rather than being thought. What he’s learned is that directing our thoughts, instead of being directed by them, is not only possible, it’s transformative.
