Time Wasters-Day 19

Reset Your Thinking – Day 19 Time Wasters

Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.” –William Shakespeare

ResetDo you have a “time-waster,” of which you are guilty?  Mine is being on the Internet too long. I find that if I go online at the end of my workday or at least until I finish the most important tasks of the day, I am more productive and less likely to “wander” around in cyberspace.

Time is a very precious resource. The fact is that regardless of how well you manage time, at the end of a day, you will still only have had 24 hours. In one year there are still only 8,760 hours. The key is using your time efficiently and eliminating time wasters from your day. Your attitudes and behaviors affect how you use your time. Below are some examples of ineffective use of time. By substituting what’s not working for you with a more effective behavior and/or attitude you’re on the road to managing your time. You can start with..

  1. Less Interruptions/Distractions
  2. Organizing and planning your dayIm
  3. Implementing.. stop putting off things to do-procrastinator
  4. Being easy on yourself lighten up perfectionist
  5. Stop trying to do everything yourself
  6. Evaluating the task – take on as much as you can handle
  7. Having a crisis management plan in place
  8. Limiting your socializing (have a time frame)
  9. Retooling yourself if you’re lacking in skills

Time is of the essence, this is the time to be more productive, more efficient. Stop wasting time. Take the time to reflect, access and document how and where you’re wasting your time. #ResetYourThinking #StopWastingTime

Declutter Your Mind – Day 7

Declutter Your Mind – Day 7

“Clutter is the physical manifestation of unmade decisions fueled by procrastination” – Christine Scalise

ResetReset your thinking, a mind that sometimes cannot find the calm that we so desperately seek is a cluttered mind. There’s something a lot worse than having a cluttered home or workspace, and that’s having a cluttered mind. A cluttered mind is restless and unfocused. It tries to move in many different directions at once and the result is that very little gets done.

A good way to start the New Year is by resetting your thinking, clean out some space in your head. You can get started by following the 10 ways to declutter your mind and free up mental space which you’ll find.

  1. Declutter your physical space – (physical clutter leads to mental clutter)
  2. Write your thoughts down – (write what stored in your brain)
  3. Let go of the past – (let go of the mistakes, the quilt)
  4. Stop multitasking (organize/declutter area of importance)
  5. Keep a journal – (download your inner chatter) 
  6. Monitor the amount of information coming in (stop the overload of information)
  7. Be decisive (make a decision)
  8. Prioritize – (focus on what’s important)
  9. Have a regimen about your day – (plan and organize the details of your day)
  10. Learn to meditate – (focus the mind)

Mental clutter leads to congestion in our inner world. It gets in the way of being able to think clearly, and to focus on what really matters. This year begin by Reset Your Thinking.
