November is a busy month for a lot of, myself included. When that is the case in my life, I are inclined to multitask with urgency, attempting to get extra completed in much less time. Whereas multitasking is a factor I’ve typically celebrated prior to now, I now know that in actuality, it solely tends to result in extra chaos and stress in my life.
One of many causes I’ve all the time been drawn to multitasking is that all the things on my record normally feels equally necessary—despite the fact that that is hardly ever the case. None of us can do it all, on a regular basis. Finally, we’ve to prioritize. We now have to select—each minute, each hour, and day by day. The place do I wish to place my power? What’s my precedence at this second and on this season?
This month on Wit & Delight, our theme is about constructing—and sustaining—a way of focus.
It’s about giving our power to the issues we actively select and letting go of the issues we don’t. It’s about deciding on the nonnegotiable components of our lives that enable us to operate at our greatest and determining tips on how to decide to them with renewed consideration.
As we transfer into November, contemplate taking a second to replicate on the next questions:
- When so many issues are being requested of me, what are the core each day habits I nonetheless wish to preserve?
- The place do I wish to focus my power within the vacation season forward?
- What boundaries do I must set with others and with myself?
Constructing a way of focus means slowing down when attainable and permitting ourselves the house to find out our record of priorities with care and intention. After I prioritize the issues that matter most to me, the advantages are far better than when I attempt to get each single factor completed. I hope we are able to all expertise a bit extra of this sense of focus within the month forward.
