When The 15-Minute Writer twists the knob on the timer, the world drops away. Sounds fade and his task comes into focus.
Placing his fingers on the keyboard, words appear on the screen.
With the ticking of the timer at the edge of his perception he is in command of his faculties.
Sirens can scream past his window, the phone can ring.
And his fingers keep moving, as he continues to breathe, easily and naturally, at ease with himself.
He achieves a rare thing – a mind at rest, engaged in a single task.
Because he has learned to use the 15-minute timer to develop the skill of concentration, there is no strain and little emotion.
The 15-Minute Writer is able to produce the work he intends, for a brief span, without being disturbed by the thoughts that plague the untrained.
He is able, even, to stare at a blank screen without becoming anxious. He knows his mind will answer his command.
And when he begins again, to move his fingers and observe words on the screen, his state does not change.
There is no separation in his mind when he is living inside the cocoon of the 15-minute session.
By developing his higher faculty that is available to all who put in the effort, he achieves a state that has been described by others who reach the pinnacle of their field. From martial artists to athletes and executives, the best all share the ability to concentrate on command, abandoning the world of everyday concern and living only within the scope of their ability, attention and task.
When The 15-Minute Writer sets the timer and places his fingers on the keyboard, he is alone in the world and able to summon awesome power to accomplish his task. While he is so engaged he does not think of himself as a Ninja, an Olympian or a billionaire.
He does not think of him self at all. There is only the task. And when he is done, that is why it glows with life.
