During Stress Mastery workshops, I share ways to simplify our lives. Here are the top 3 ways.
Define what is most important for the day that will have a great impact in the future too. People call it prioritization. And everyone knows they need to prioritize.
And everyone thinks he is prioritizing. Actually, he is prioritizing chaos, not goals. So, you must create that habit of awareness of what is the most important achievement today and for tomorrow.
Determine what you should stop doing. Eliminate what is NOT necessary. Everything seems necessary until you answer the first question: what really is important to me?
You and I have limited time. Accept that. Then work on that which will give us the greatest impact to the world ( and please don’t forget your happiness too!)
Develop a daily routine. There are things you don’t need to include in your bullet journals. These are your routines. So you can give more attention to what is more important, let your body remember your routines for you.
This is how I simplify life.
A to-do list is a good thing. However, a to-do list with ten, twenty, or thirty items is overwhelming. It is a sure template to daily failures and frustrations. Because there is not enough time to do all things . And all things aren’t equal.
To believe that your reason for breathing another living minute is to accomplish a to-do list is one big mistake my friend. You decide what should be in that list.
You decide which one you must do now. And this is another way of saying that you decide which you must not do now.
We measure ourselves better with the outcome we create, the impact we make, the value we produce.
We do not become productive because we do more. People who are caught in a whirlwind do more everyday. But they don’t get the most important goals done.
In this short post, I invite you to that more is not always better.
A simple step to make time go faster when you are bored at work: Do you job as fast as you can. Then, when you are done, find something else to do. You’ll soon find that you do not have enough time to do everything. That’s okay. You will have something to do the next…
People procrastinate not because they don’t want to do anything. Procrastinators are busy people. They do many things so that they can find justifications for not doing what must be done. Our lizard brain is a great deceiver. You and I can easily be deceived if we measure our day on the amount of activities…
