As you start to get your monkey mind under control and begin to regularly experience moments of calm concentration, recognise that you're putting your mind in the best posture for creativity / high-value thoughts. The usual mental chatter fills up the space that new ideas and insights need to germinate and grow.
See if you can get a bit more resolution/awareness around how low-value vs high-value thoughts feel (physically, emotionally and cognitively). Broadly speaking, the lower-value (business as usual) thoughts will have a degree of familiarity and feeling stuck or tense, and the higher-value ones will have a feeling of newness, expansion and even wonder about them.
Your monkey mind's genius lies in higher-value thinking. You and the world need your insight and creativity. Growing your focus muscles is setting the monkey up for success!
