Some Life Lessons

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Center

A friend forwarded me some Life Lessons and I thought I would share them.

 

1.  Focus on one task at a time.  Research shows that our brains actually can't multitask, and that when we think we are, what's really happening is that our attention keeps switching from one thing to the other and we end up doing both tasks poorly.  Simply put, prioritize tasks and don't tackle another until you finish with the first one.

 

2.  Choose a few things to automate.  For example, if you like good food for breakfast, and don't need much variety, stick to the same breakfast daily.  It saves you time and you can focus on other tasks. 

 

3.  Small steps matter most.  Break a large goal into one small step at a time.  Often what is standing in your way is you.

 

4.  Find quiet.  It's important to be able to access your center of calmness.  Finding that quiet place and being able to go there makes it easier to think clearly , especially when you are stressed. 

 

Relax

Kristin, sometimes I have to turn my cell phone off for twenty minute stretches and find a quiet bench to sit on so that I can refocus my thoughts.

The efficiency levels drop dramatically with multitasking.  Adding new brims to an old hat through cross training is evidenced by lesser service in most companies.  When I go outside the man made noise is deafening.  A light free and sound proof room would be ideal for rejuvenation.

Excellent thoughts. Prioritizing works a lot better than doing the things you like and putting off the things you don't.

Great advice Kristin.  I am so guilty of multi tasking.  I try to stop myself and focus on one thing, when I do, I get so much more done.

Kristin - very enjoyable post and very true. Meditation does work and does help. Sometimes all you need is 20 min. of quiet. Suggested.
