Sometimes important things disappear from our memory and focus. Lapses are usually temporary, but they can seriously disrupt things. All of a sudden it’s Wednesday and you realize you missed an important deadline or appointment on Tuesday.
Many things can cause you to lapse: distraction, overwhelm, stress. What can you do? The best defense against lapsing may be that you live fully present in the moment. Stay grounded and you will remember that appointment. In reality, that is not a constant state, is it? Short of it, you can do your best to manage stress, see the signs that you are moving into overwhelm and improve your focus on what needs to happen within your day.
Lapses happen. However, best that our lapses be few. Lapses do you no good. Lessen their probability and stay on your game.
