The thing is… technically you shouldn’t “feel” anything; you won’t feel distracted, or forgetful. You won’t feel anxiety when making any sort of decisions. You won’t feel astounded when you look at the time, and do not know where all your time has gone. You won’t feel like you’re struggling all the time. You should just feel… Clarity. Ease. Things just… work. Things that you procrastinated on or forgotten about, are now effortless to accomplish.
