ZEN+ : Simple, Direct, Effective : ZEN+ Benefits

A life lesson from the All-You-Can-Eat-Buffet

By Marcus Santer

Sunday’s are when I like to fill my tank.

And yesterday whilst doing my hour of household chores I was listening to various pod-casts.

That’s when I came across the term:

Buffet Thinking: Trying a little bit of everything once.

I had to chuckle because I immediately recognised this character trait in myself.

Let me explain…

You start a new ‘thing’ and you’re full of hope and enthusiasm. The thing can be absolutely anything:

Like I said, it can be almost anything.

But after a few days, weeks or months of trying and not seeing the results you want you try something new or you quit and decide whatever you were doing doesn’t work.

You might be right.

But there’s a good chance you didn’t dig deep enough.

One of the downsides of the constant flow of information we have access to is it’s very easy to get distracted. Personally I find I have work quite hard not to be pulled off the path I’m on.

Here’s my suggestion on how to avoid Buffet Thinking.

Let’s say you’ve decided to practice meditation in order to help you switch off your overstimulated Fight or Flight mode and turn on your Rest, Repair and Build mode.

You’ve done your research and chosen a suitable method to practice.

And you start to practice.

But after a few days you notice that the peace you experience during your practice doesn’t seem to last very long. And then you get an email telling you about some new way of practicing meditation, or a friend tells you how they do it and you stop what you’re doing and try something else.

Sound familiar?

Here’s what I do to avoid Buffet Thinking.

When I’ve done my research and decided to start a new thing. I immediately unsubscribe from all other sources of information related to that thing.

I hang a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on my door, shut down all distractions and get to work.

After a suitable period of time – usually 3 to 6 months – I review what I’ve done and what I’ve got as a result of it. And if I’m happy I’ll keep on doing it.

If I’m not I’ll try something new.

As a Qigong teacher, the biggest reason I see why new folk don’t get the results they want is this:

Quitting too soon.

And why do they quit too soon?

Because they weren’t really committed in the first place.

So if today’s ZEN+ Daily is resonating with you, it’s time for you to ditch your Buffet Thinking and get ready to dig in deep.

And I’ve got the perfect opportunity for you.

The ZEN+ Home Study Course (Z+HSC) is scheduled to be completed by April 3rd 2015. And it will be the most comprehensive collection of materials focusing on:

It will be made up of

It will all be as simple, direct and effective as I can make it. And it will be presented in the clear and systematic fashion I have presented all of my previous books, DVD’s and other learning materials.

But it’s not for Buffet Thinkers

If you only graze from the menu and then float off to try something else, you won’t get the results you want.

You’ll waste your time and mine.

So, the Z+HSC is for folk who like to roll their sleeves up and dig in deep.

If that’s you, you’re going to be happier than a clam when I open the course.

Stay tuned.

Bye for now

P.S. If you’re reading this, there’s a very good chance you already own a copy of my ZEN+ book.

In it’s 196 pages, I told you exactly WHAT to do if you want to stack the odds of living a happier, healthier and longer life in your favour.

And all the scientific research I added made it clear WHY you’d be smart to do it.

The ZEN+ HSC is the key to unlocking it all.

It’s the HOW to do it.

And it’s coming soon =)
