(work) Live Smart

 
You are a bright, intelligent person. Over the years you have developed habits or routines. These routines define how you get things done and how you live your life. Challenge yourself to reevaluate your routines and intentionally decide what works best for you.
 

  • Perform a time audit – each one of us has 24 hours, 1,440 minutes or 86,400 seconds in a day. There are certain things you must do to live such as eat and sleep. The rest of the time is yours to invest as you decide. Measure what you spend your time doing (or not doing) and decide whether that is a wise investment.
 
  • Focus then be frivolous – research shows that we can’t multitask. We are biologically incapable of processing attention-rich inputs simultaneously. Work attentively on one task or activity at a time and then allow yourself some time to be unapologetically unproductive. The ebb and flow allows your brain to function in its most productive state. The more you try to do at once the more you dilute your focus and your productive power.

 
Live smart by understanding how you spend your time and whether it is a wise investment. Intentionally spend your time on what matters to you. Remember to focus on doing one thing for twenty to thirty minutes before switching your attention.
Live smart – live intentionally!
