Try This….

Posted by The Mint on January 21, 2013


Here is a challenge for you: For one hour today, just do one thing at a time. Whatever you do, just do that one thing only. If you are starting your day with a cup of coffee, just drink the coffee without watching TV, reading or listening to music. Just drink your coffee.

Continue this practice with whatever you are doing for one hour. Were you able to do it? How was it? Did you learn anything? In the book, “The Power of Full Engagement”, Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz warn that multitasking results in divided attention, lower quality of work and a shallowness of connection to others. Do you remember a time when someone gave you his or her full attention? How did that make you feel?  Do you remember a time when you gave a project YOUR full attention? How did it turn out?

“Our life is frittered away by   detail… Simplify, simplify.” – Henry Thoreau

I would love to hear if any of you took up this practice – even if it is just for one hour this week.

AffirMINTion: I am learning to focus on one thing at a time.

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!
