This is October 30th of my book: ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At ATime‘.
Take the opportunity today to make something.
I find that the act of making something can either be so absorbing that the clutter of daily thoughts fades into the background, or, making that thing is so automatic that your mind can drift away almost like meditating.
Whichever experience you have it will be valuable, plus you end up with something at the end of it. Maybe it’s dinner! Maybe it’s a painting or a sculpture, or a textile object.
Whatever it is it’s therapeutic to make it. It didn’t exist until you created it. That in itself is worth doing it for.
I call this ‘Constructive Meditation’.

I hear a lot about meditation, how useful it is to gaining clarity of mind, calmness, peace. But meditation comes in many forms – doesn’t it?
For me, sitting still trying to clear my mind just doesn’t work. I have to walk in the woods, sit on a hilltop, or just take 5 minutes with a cuppa and a comfy chair – with no distractions. This to me is meditation. I gain clarity of mind, feel calm and peaceful and very often have my best ideas!
I’d love for you to join in the discussion and let me know what your preferred form of meditating is, or whether you don’t bother.

Some people have questioned whether they are too old to read my book because it might be too late for them to change. Rather than try and convince them or you that you’re never too old to change I thought I’d post the story of Burt Goldman from p.291 of the book…
“Burt Goldman is about 84 years old (at the time of writing this). In his life he has travelled the world and studied under many masters of thought. He has an online community with hundreds of thousands of subscribers that turns over millions of dollars each year.
He is also an award winning photographer and prolific artist that sells his paintings for thousands of dollars each. He also plays the piano and writes his own music – well he is 84 after all, he’s had a long time to achieve all these things.
He only started when he turned 80!
That’s right, at the ripe old age of 80 Burt decided to turn his mind to achieving things he’d been thinking about for a long time but never got around to. Thankfully he had been training his mind for many decades and therefore knew how to apply himself to each goal.
Guess what? So can You.
That’s right – it’s never too late to learn something new or apply something you know. It just takes the desire to do so. So if one of your excuses is: ‘it’s too late for you’ – take a lesson from Burt, the moment you take your last breath is when it’s actually too late.”
