Sometimes just to relax, you need to take a few moments out to just “be”. In this process of “be”ing you can take stock of your situation, breath deeply and refocus your attention.

As a musician I will often just pick up my guitar and play a few chords.

Please take a minute and enjoy this musical Interlude.

Time Wasters

Daydreams distract dutiful deeds,
while the clock ticks on.
Wonder wafts while work waits,
until time has gone.

Throw out your To-Do list

Have you ever been paralysed by a to-do list that keeps getting longer?

Perhaps it’s time to stop doing them and work on those things that the highest priorities for your business.

Group tasks together under major headings then match the importance of those categories to the goals and values of your organisation.

Then start with the most important first. Don’t be fooled by the urgent, there are at times urgent things that should get our attention, but the main area that you should focus on is the important.

There are many thing that can distract you through out your day, perhaps when you are feeling distracted the most stand up stretch get the blood flowing again then make a clear decision to get the task down.

It is amazing how a micro rest can clear your head and improve your productivity.
