Lately I have had to really focus on making my mind less hectic. I have a doctorate in procrastination and found I need to write things down in order to get some things done. I have also discovered that I still put off doing things on my list sometimes. Well, a lot of the time.
A to do list is a great tool to get you started, but I found that scheduling things in my calendar was a huge step in getting more important things done. Your phone comes equipped with a calendar, use it. Once I started scheduling my time at the gym, time to work on my business, my meditation practice and other important matters in life, I became much more efficient with my time. Time is the one commodity we can not acquire more. Be stingy with your time. Everything I do is scheduled on a calendar. This is a tough habit to stick with, but when you commit 30 days to the process, you will be surprised about how much more efficient you become.
Meditation is the second practice I have started that was so difficult in the beginning, but is an important part of my daily routine. How do you start meditating? Youtube has great beginner videos that will walk you through, 10, 15 or 30 minute sessions. Just push play and follow the instructions. I highly recommend starting off in the 5-10 minute range. Spotify is another great resource for meditation. Just start. set aside 10 minutes a day where you won’t be disturbed. Meditation benefits include reduced stress, improved concentration, information processing, fosters creativity an a host of other amazing things.
With great change comes great patience. Try these practices in your life for the next 30 days and I guarantee you will see dramatic improvements in you life. So many people I talk to live unfulfilled lives. They are over 40, and feel like the American dream is really not a dream at all. We are at a point were we realize this ride is at best half way over. Perspectives and things change dramatically as life chugs along. Thank you for joining me as I document my journey to build a newline after 40.
