I appreciate your effort to add value so I gave it multiple reads in order to try to find something positive I could take away.
I’m going to say something to you that’s not meant to convince you that my post is right — just to explain why it’s hard for me to accept your certainty. Everything I wrote was from direct observation of myself and other people in multiple contexts ranging over decades.
Your post has multiple elements. On second read, I was able to appreciate most of them. It’s just the element of certainty that you expressed about my post that I just have to reject out of hand. You’re a stranger on the internet telling me that my direct observation is wrong.
However, once I got past that, I found a lot of value in your explanation of your experience with mindfulness for performance. Thank you for writing.
