How To Live On Twenty-Four Hours A Day

to the brain its task and to insure obedience - true life is impossible. Mind control is the first element of a full existence. Hence, it seems to me, the first business of the day should be to put the mind through its paces. It is for this portion of the art and craft of living that I have reserved the time from the moment of quitting your door to the moment of arriving at your office.
" What? I am to cultivate my mind in the street, on the platform, and in the train?" Precisely. Nothing simpler! No tools required! Not even a book. Nevertheless, the affair is not easy.
When you leave your house, concentrate your mind on a subject (no matter what, to begin with). You will not have gone ten yards before your mind has skipped away under your very eyes and is larking around the corner with another subject. Bring it back by the scruff of the neck. Ere you have reached the station you will have brought it back about 40 times. Do not despair. You cannot fail if you persevere. Do you not remember that morning when you received a disquieting letter which demanded a very carefully worded answer? How you kept your mind steadily on the subject of the answer until you reached the office: whereupon you instantly sat down and wrote the answer? That was a case in which you were roused by circumstances to such a degree of vitality that you were able to dominate your mind like a tyrant. You insisted that its work should be done, and its work was done.
By the regular practice of concentration (as to which there is no secret save perseverance) you can tyrannize over your mind every hour of the day, and in no matter what place.
Now you are saying to yourself: "This fellow had begun to interest me. But what he says about thinking on trains, and on concentration, and so on, is not for me." It is for you, I passionately repeat. Indeed, you are the very man I am aiming at. Throw away the suggestion, and you throw away the most precious suggestion that was ever offered to you. Try it. Get your mind in hand. And see how the process cures half the evils of life - especially worry, that miserable, avoidable, shameful disease - worry.
