Food For Thought: An addiction to distraction is a killer to creative production

💡 How often do we allow ourselves to get “distracted” so that we can avoid doing what we want to or have to do❓ This is also known as procrastination…

In my experience, both through studies and working with many people, to become successful, we need to dominate our daily life by producing masterpieces day-in-day-out through uninterrupted distractions…

How does one then nurture and cultivate productivity in the absence of distractions❓

✅ Practice self-discipline by making changes that put an end to time-wasting habits 

➡️ For the next 15 days, consider a time audit on what is done every 30 minutes, and identify whether the tasks are productive OR “merely busy”

✅ Often a lack of productivity and creativity is linked to us being stressed in not achieving our goals

➡️ To reduce stress, start creating an emotional link to your goals – this will help stimulate the right disciplines and actions.

✅ Lastly, get enough sleep and use the last hour before bedtime as “downtime”

➡️ Proper rest rejuvenates the brain and leads to bursts of creativity, so don’t underestimate getting enough rest if you want to be the next “hit” in the world❗️

💧 Creativity isn’t a rare gift enjoyed by the lucky few – it’s a natural part of the human brain and behaviour. Don’t let distraction kill your creativity 💧

Food For Thought: There is a Difference Between Moving Fast and Running

Food For Thought: There is a difference between moving fast and rushing.

💡 Society often rewards speed with massive business growths (for entrepreneurs), career promotions (for the employee), and even our own personal belief that we’re doing something well. Naturally, as humans we are therefore inclined to want to be quicker, more efficient and more productive in anything we do.

But being more effective, efficient and productive at the expense of rushing things doesn’t help anyone do things better. If anything, it only increases our chances of being stressed and negatively affected.

So how does one then move fast without sacrificing long term sustainability❓

✅ Move fast by being thoughtful and mindful, because when we rush through things, we sacrifice thoughtfulness

✅ Conversely, when we are thoughtful but not moving fast, we may be overthinking, and this is procrastination in disguise.

✅ Eliminate distractions by being intentional in the choices made – this will allow one to do things the right way rather than just try to complete them as quickly as possible.

✅ Remember, rushing implies desperation whilst moving fast means we retain urgency but with control and intention, and therefore reduce the risk of not reaching the end destination

💎 The little time we lose in decision making, we gain in execution 💎
