I love this phrase because it really is as literal as it gets! “A Conscious Effort”…should there be any other way? Well, apparently we had to come up with a phrase to tell us all to stop making “Unconscious Efforts”.
Seriously, break it down for a second. When you are unconscious, you are not aware…that means that many of our efforts are done without us actually realizing what we are doing. I guess it is like being knocked out…or as I like to visualize it, you are walking around “efforting” like a Zombie. (That is a pretty popular category now a days. Zombies…right?)
There is a reason, I like the phrase “Conscious Effort”. It’s kind of a passive aggressive way of saying “PAY ATTENTION”. So, make a “Conscious Effort” today, will ya? (WINK)
