The Practicing Mind

The Practicing Mind

Thomas M. Sterner

Overview

Tom Sterner used to be a chief concert piano technician for 25 years. That means that he was in charge of all technical piano-related elements for performances of big bands and musicians for concerts at a major performing arts center for legends like Ray Charles and Fleetwood Mac.

Over time and on the side, Tom developed an approach called Present Moment Functioning (PMF) in order to help individuals achieve a state of high performance by focusing entirely on the present – think of it as entering the flow state on command.

Since 2014, he has focused on coaching people in PMF and giving lectures full-time. He's also decided to share his approach in this book, The Practicing Mind.

"The problem with patience and discipline is that it requires both of them to develop each of them."
