Think of an Active Thought Container as a breakable structure, capable of shattering with the slightest disturbance.

The ability to focus and be in a flow state is delicate and easily disrupted. Active Thought Container is a concept that visualizes what happens when you focus on a task. In this state, you become less aware or even completely oblivious to your surroundings, enabling optimal performance potential.

Consider a scenario where you are deeply focused on a task, in the flow state of creativity or analytical thinking. The sudden intrusion of a phone call not only breaks your Active Thought Container but sends shockwaves through your entire body, causing an effect that can take up to 30 minutes to settle.

The transition from being deeply immersed in an Active Thought Container to suddenly not, triggers a cognitive dissonance. Your mind struggles to reconcile the two states, leading to a period of disorientation as your mind needs time to reconstruct your Active Thought Container. It's like rebuilding the walls of a sandcastle after the tide has washed it away.

Constructing an Active Thought Container:

Create the Space: Communicate your need for uninterrupted time to yourself, and those around you.

Immerse Yourself: Envision yourself engaging in this activity. See the details – the tools you're using, the environment around you, and the specific actions you're taking.

Loss of Self-Awareness: Lose yourself in the process, where the outside world and distractions fade away. Your focus is entirely on the task at hand.

Effortless Flow: Visualize an effortless flow of your actions. If you feel yourself forcing something, take a step back. Each step leads naturally to the next, and you feel a sense of control and mastery over the task.

Heightened Awareness: You will notice your senses become heightened. Your mind is fully engaged and performing to your full potential.

Time Dilation: Time is perceived differently when you're in an Active Thought Container. Hours may feel like minutes, but you are fully present in the present moment.

Reward: Appreciate the satisfaction that comes from being in this state of flow. It is a fulfilling experience where the process itself is rewarding.

Active Thought Containers, once built, shield your thought world from the external world, allowing you to fully immerse in the task at hand. Your attention is a valuable asset, and cultivating this skill helps you focus and pursue your potential.
