A client who is moving ever closer to actually finishing her dissertation tells me that she is focusing on what she can do in the moment.
She has found that being in the moment takes work. There’s nothing airy-fairy about it.
And there’s much to be gained from staying in the moment.
By focusing on the present, she has become detached a bit from what she calls “the anxiety of the end.” She is not looking that far ahead.
She is telling herself that all she can do is put in the time, continue to work, and trust her her ideas.
That’s mental toughness.
