One Minute Motivator # 372

When is “good enough” good enough?

If you are into “success” and “‘motivation”, you are probably doing too much.

It is easy to set “being the best” as your goal and then treat every project with the same effort. Going all out becomes your only speed. But then you burn out and realize you spent a lot of time on things that weren’t your top priority. You have to temper your efforts in terms of how thing rank on your goals and priorities. Time, money and energy are all limited. You need to step back every once in awhile and see if what you are doing merits all the effort you are putting in on it.

What are you doing that is good enough?

Multitasking lowers your IQ.

Researchers have proven that multitasking lowers your IQ by 10 points.

Multitasking is done by switching your focus from one thing to another rapidly. It is impossible for the brain to focus on two things at once, it is all just a rapid change in focus. This is not a very efficient process for the brain and your effectiveness drops as a result of it. Multitasking is a tradeoff you have to take into consideration. Are you gaining enough from changing focus to offset the loss in efficiency?

Chances are you will be better off reducing your multitasking.

Busyness is NOT a badge of honor.

Busyness is just an illness that makes everything harder than it has to be.

We manufacture busyness to avoid just being exactly who we are, exactly where we are. In the process, we not only miss out on the serenity and beauty that exists within us, Let’s start keeping our lives ordered and our schedules under-booked. So we can pause to hear the music for a moment, and smile, when the opportunity arises.

It is time to pare down that to do list and live life.
