I know you are like me and plan to do 1 million things every single day. And then when you only get half of those things done, you feel like somehow you failed. Am I right?
I get it. You have a busy life and a lot of to-dos but it often feel like you are spinning in circles. Questions pop up like, am I doing the right thing? Is this what I should be focusing on? Will I get a lot out of this?
When you are going really fast and consistently multi-tasking it is hard to find clarity.
But, by honing your focus to one thing at a time, this will allow you to be more productive and get more done throughout your day. Having 10 tabs open in your mind is similar to having 10 tabs open on your computer - too many at a time can get confusing, overwhelming and slow down the processing.
By practicing mindfulness at work, you will have an easier time executing your tasks and enjoy the process.
A mindfulness tool that can be very helpful before an important meeting and can be done in your head or out loud with your team/kids/coworkers.
