Do More By Doing Less
You will be familiar with the old adage that less is more, and this is true from how we dress, eat, act and how we achieve…there is food for thought now! But it has been confirmed by many entrepreneurs and gurus in the health field that doing too much is not good for you. How true it is when you evaluate multi-tasking and the results you gain from it. Too many juggling balls, over extending ourselves and then feeling exhausted and emotionally drained.
We start with de-cluttering our lives to achieve mental clarity and to physically tidy up our drawers, cupboards, storage etc. When we create space in our environment by clearing out and organising we are making way for a fresh new start, we can re-invent ourselves and our surroundings and start with a clean approach. Remember Quality over quantity!
Review your commitments on a daily basis, what do you actually have time for, what could be automated via a process (either hiring help or using technology to simplify your life). Working longer, harder and more hands on does not equal success nor does it guarantee you anything. Thus a structured and well thought out planned schedule is what is needed here. What you do undertake and complete each day is the target and goal accomplishment that will get you further.
Select carefully each day what projects you will be giving your focus to. Once these are complete and handed over or ‘put to bed’ it is then time to look at the next items on the list. It is all about prioritising. There is no point in dabbling in a little bit of everything, each task needs to be finished to the highest standard. Jack of all trades is an advantage but not if it is accompanied by the tagline master of none.
Meaningful relationships is where it is at. There is no point in having an endless address book crammed full of contacts in your personal life, we need those characters around us who are our ‘4am calls’ you know the kind of people we can rely on through good and bad. Some friendships are cultivated later in life, others are there for a reason or a season. Know your closest nearest and dearest and strike the rest. It may all change again, but that is the beauty of living.
Less stress will be evident in this way and by saying less yes you will do so much more. Do not allow heavy expectations to be placed upon you it is simply a burden and will prevent you from achieving.
