May 2016 - Doing One Thing at a Time

rebel-blog-201605“You need to be doing fewer things for more effect instead of doing more things with side effects.” ~ Gary Keller

The results are in, and they are crystal clear. Multitasking does NOT work. Our brains are simply not wired to do as many things simultaneously as we talk ourselves into thinking are possible. Sure, we can go through the motions of being on a conference call, updating our To Do list, working on the report that’s due next week, and planning a vacation from the madness of it all, but at the end of the day, how effective have we been and were we even conscious as we moved through the day? Or did we shuffle through in a fog, not even noticing if it was raining or sunny and certainly not remembering the details of our conversations with colleagues, family, or friends or even the route home from work?

Well, 10 years from now most of us will wish we had paid attention more and had been really present as life was whizzing by faster and faster. Guess what? You can take action right NOW and not have regrets later about all the things you missed by not really focusing on what you were doing when you were doing it:

  • Read The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results by Gary Keller
  • Discover the impact of multitasking on your brain.

April 2016 - Being Instead of Doing

rebel-blog-201604Ever feel like you are on a road to nowhere? You’re constantly busy, with an endless To Do list, but yet never seem to be progressing (and the list keeps getting longer no matter what you do!). Have you turned into the proverbial smoke but no real fire?

Well, maybe just maybe too much of your time is being spent doing rather than being. At the end of the day, are you checking off boxes but not getting a sense of satisfaction or even a feeling of any accomplishment? What if you considered how great it is just to be who you are? You don’t have to be thin or rich or retired or a superhero, although all those scenarios might indeed be fabulous.

What would happen if you just took a breath and did “nothing”? Because “doing nothing” is actually quite a lot. Have you ever noticed how often you get more done by simply trying to do less?

We have a natural inclination to want to get as much done as possible in the least amount of time possible. We also typically grossly overestimate what is realistic given the number of hours there are in a day and how busy our lives usually are. We convince ourselves if get the 10,000 things on our list behind us, then we’ll have the time to relax and take a break. If you’ve figure out a way to make this happen in a sustainable way and not burn out in the process, please let the rest of us in on your secret!

How about giving something different a try? You can get started by learning "The Art of Stillness" from Pico Iyer.
