Doing More in a Shorter Period of Time

We all would like to have things done fast and enjoy time with our families and the “me time”. There are ways where you can accomplish all of that.

First, whatever it is that we need to do the best thing is to do it straight away. When we file one piece of paper it takes us only a few seconds and it is done. When we place something on a stack to be put away later, before we know it the pile becomes a little mountain and it will take a while to file it. Filing what we have right now, takes a very short time and makes us feel accomplished.

The key is for us to feel good. When we feel good we are calm and we will do more things in a shorter period of time. When we are calm we become very effective.

Talking to our co-workers is fun, but if we have our own business we are paid for results. So, it is a good idea to keep those conversations to a minimum.

Recently, scientists say that doing one thing at a time is more efficient than multitasking. Let’s analyze it. When we do more than one thing at a time, we switch between the tasks constantly. Every single time we do that, it takes our mind a moment to get back to the place where we left. So, as we keep changing what we do, all the moments add up. Only when we take one task at a time from the beginning to the finish, giving it our full attention we realize how much faster we accomplish them comparing to multitasking. When I applied that idea of doing things one at a time, I was surprised how much time I had left over. I had everything done in 2/3 or half the time compared to multitasking.

Make a plan for a day of what it is that you need to do. It will take you only 2-3 minutes. Than follow your plan. It will save you lots of time and make you confident when you already know what your next step is. Other things might come up, but when you have a plan it will be much easier to pick up where you left off. Make sure that you put ONLY 6 of the most important things on your list. This way you will be able to achieve them during your day and that will make you feel awesome.

And the most important is to have fun with everything that what we do. When we have fun we do everything faster and easier.

Have an absolutely magical week, full of LOVE, GRATITUDE and FUN!!!
