I am working on managing my time. The problem with overwhelm is one I have been trying to tackle for years. The problem I have is trying to get a lot of work done, and feeling stressed out with it all.
So I have been trying to take smaller steps in shorter amounts of time. It’s hard to digest how many areas of my life demand my time and attention.
Life is a journey. Take it one step at a time.
It seems I’ve gained a month of time since I last posted a week ago. I have stayed off Facebook and Twitter in efforts to gain my life back. I think about how TV robs me of my time as well. The main thing in order to live is to be able to concentrate your mind on something that is beneficial to you. There are so many things that can distract us from our purpose and dreams.
I think people are becoming more idle, more sedentary and more fat because they are glued to a screen. Rich or poor people, it doesn’t matter, if you are idle and unfocused you are not progressing, and you cannot feel content with your life. Take charge of who you are, and decide what you want. If you want to be happy, take control of your own mind and don’t let others keep you from reaching your goals.
How do we present ourselves? I saw a very cute saying, “Your vibe attracts your tribe.” The things that we value, and the things we remember, are things that are important to us and our way of life. They are often the things we are attracted to, or are drawn to, and respect.
Notwithstanding, there are those who track everything we are interested in. They’re trying to market to us. And again, others try to influence us with their opinions. However, not every idea suits every person. We can filter ideas.
How do we sift through all the muck and mire to get some benefit from the Internet? We need ourselves to lead ourselves. Plan your work, and work your plan. Don’t get sidetracked if you can. Find the best and forget the rest.
These may all sound like cliches. Still it’s good advice if we don’t want to wind up lost in a vast wasteland of clicks and distractions that suck up our time and rob us of our focus.
Decide what’s most important. Seeing it in this light, you can use your focused and purposeful vibe to attract your focused and purposeful tribe.
Have at it and lead yourself to success!
