“I’m stressed out!”
On a Saturday morning two years ago I was sitting in the bath reading, “Getting Things Done” by David Allen. Oh, right… that's a relaxing book!
I needed to relax, which is why I was taking a bath. I thought I would sink deep into the water and let go, except while reading my “relaxing book on productivity” I got an idea. I quickly grabbed my iPhone to dictate my idea and then got back to “trying to relax” in the bath.
Seeing a pattern here?
I was so distracted, I couldn’t even take a relaxing bath!
Distractions take you away from what matters
Are you distracted by various “options” that promise to do or make something better or easier in life – when doing it the way you’ve always done it, might be the most efficient and effective method?
An important question to ask yourself when you’re feeling distracted is,
“Where do I need to put my attention, right now, to accomplish/to feel/to focus…”
