"Only when we truly understand what living in the moment is all about, may we learn that living in the moment is all we ever needed."
We live hectic lives and often feel trapped by both the past and/or the future. To help bring ourselves back to the present moment, try this short breathing exercise. This exercise can and should be performed several times throughout the day. Take as little or as much time as you need. Anywhere from 10 seconds to several minutes or even hours. You can do this with your eyes opened or closed. At any time and any part of the day. Do it whilst while driving, shopping, working, in the toilet, etc.
If you have continued problems clearing your mind, use the following technique to start you off.
Good Luck and best wishes.
This is likely the simplest time management strategy you are likely to come across. Time Management really can be as easy as ABC. Here is a nice, simple strategy I learnt a few years ago which I have nicknamed the A,B,C Plan.
Prioritise and categorise all your tasks into 3 levels:
A - Critical - This usually includes tasks given to you by your boss.
B - Less Critical - This usually includes tasks given to you by your team or business.
C - Non-Critical - All other tasks.
Complete all category A tasks in order of best priority.
Complete category B tasks next in order of best priority.
If time allows, complete all category C tasks in order of best priority.
And remember not to beat yourself up when not all tasks are done. Nobody ever really finishes everything in business. It’s all about prioritizing.
