Multi-tasking is not what its all cut out to be. Sure when you're in the moment, it seems like you're able to accomplish more than 1 task at a time, it feels like you're doing MORE, and being efficient about your work. Until of course you're required to keep that same level of energy, time & effort in order to sustain.

Don't get caught up in trying to do everything before you can do anything.
Focusing on one thing at a time slows the process, but it builds it up to last much longer than the idea of getting multiple tasks completed right away.

How though?
Create a system for yourself that will allow you to 'step by step' accomplish each task one at a time. Patience is key here!
Develop habits that will help you achieve your goals (tasks),
write things down, hold yourself accountable for your actions (and lack thereof),
failing is normal so don't get down on yourself when you fall off and start back up again. Remember to enjoy the process, because that's the whole point anyway. 

 

Slow progress is better than no progress.

We all have a lot of things going on and sometimes we're not necessarily the best at setting them up in an organized manner. It could be simple things like a catch-up meeting I’ve set with a friend you haven’t seen in a long time or declaring taxes for a new business you just set up. Yeah, both of those are examples of the many things that can potentially make your stress levels increase. 

It takes a different mindset to feel that way… It takes being “Mindful” to accept that it’s not a negative thing.

Know what is going on in your head to help you better understand what is going on around you, and better yet let it assist you in figuring out how to deal with whatever those different things may be.

"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards."

Søren Kierkegaard

Take time to reflect. It might be the number one thing to help you grow forward.

STOP WORRYING ABOUT THE WRONG THINGS
Here's a percentage breakdown of what most humans worry about according to the late Earl Nightingale who was an American radio speaker and author, dealing mostly with the subjects of human character development, motivation, and meaningful existence:

1. Things that never happen: 40 percent. That is, 40 percent of the things you worry about will never occur anyway.
2. Things that have happened in the past that can’t be changed by all the worry in the world: 30 percent.
3. Needless worries about our health: 12 percent.
4. Petty, miscellaneous worries: 10 percent.
5. Real, legitimate worries: 8 percent. Only 8 percent of your worries are worth concerning yourself about. Ninety-two percent are pure fog with no substance at all.

All that to say this;
1. If you're not experiencing fear today...right now, then you're not taking enough new actions necessary for growth.
2. The worst that can happen is never really that bad. Unless you're facing death or perhaps prison....nothing else can stop you from facing your fears.
" It does not take money or luck to create a great life; It requires the ability to move past your fears with speed and power. Fear, like fire, is not something from which you should pull away. Rather, it should be used to fuel the actions of your life "- Grant Cardone.

Are you tired? Are you scared? Are you happy?
How do you feel about your emotions, your body, your mind?

Questions we don’t ask ourselves enough.

Questions some of us never ask at all.

 

Self-Awareness is a MUST
If you want to figure out where you’re headed, it’s easier to start with where you are right at this moment. It gives you a better sense as to everything you need to pack up with you for the journey ahead. Digging deeper to understand the person you are or the person you are becoming can only be done by you.

So…
Find out where you need to go (set yourself some goals).
Understand where you currently are physically/mentally (Self-Awareness).
Learn about your self (mind/body/soul),
Challenge the status-quo and recreate things that are Innovative,
Add Value…understand it, appreciate it, bring It,
Last but certainly not least…laugh, smile, dance…whatever!… Just Enjoy it all.
