Learn How to Multitask

Here I am riding my stationary bike and thinking about all the things I can do while I have 30-45 minutes where my body is busy, but my mind is free. I could listen to personal development, audios, catch up on emails and text messages or listen to music. How to effectively multitask is something so many of us try to master, but often does not seem to work to our advantage.

One thing I learned when I first started building my own personal business is to make the most of the time where you can feed your mind with knowledge while your body is busy doing other things. Anytime you are doing something where you can be listening to personal development while still accomplishing something is key.

While you are working out, cleaning the house, doing laundry, you can also be filling your mind with knowledge. Turn your car into a learning university and listen to audiobooks, podcasts, anything that will fill your brain with messages that empower you. This is how you can effectively multitask and get more done and of course, you can achieve so much more when you are feeding your mind with great information.

I want to live a full life, full of meaning with more fun and less stress. A life of mediocrity is not something that appeals to me and should not sound good to anyone. I tell people all the time that multitasking is a myth, I used to think that to become more successful I needed to learn to multitask better. What I have found is that you can only truly focus on one thing at a time.

There is only one way to actually multitask, it is to combine a mindless activity with a mindful activity. Whenever your body is occupied, you can be filling your mind with personal development and bettering yourself from the inside out. What can not be done is reading emails or answering texts while listening to audio, you can’t focus on two things that use your brain at the same time.

To give yourself a competitive edge, you need to fill your mind with knowledge that will help you achieve your goals. Think about all the times where you can combine a mindless activity with a mindful activity and even if it is just ten minutes a day, just start filling your mind with knowledge.

Give Yourself Permission To Rise

What does success look like to you? Do you feel successful or have you settled into a routine that made you put your dreams on hold? Think about the dreams and goals you have for your life, have you reached them all? Have you pushed some aside, have you settled or don’t feel you deserve anything else or better? Brendon Burchard, author, and motivational speaker, often speaks on the topics of success and performance at the next level. He reminds us to always look beyond our current circumstances, if you want to become more you must raise your ambitions and refuse to settle. The past is behind you, leave it there and focus on what you can do today to have success in your future. Is it setting aside more time to work your side business? Is it exercising on a more consistent basis? Is it something related to a personal goal that always seemed so out of reach?

Are You Drifting or Directing Your Life?

Most people feel, at some point in time, that they are drifting through life with no real direction. Drifting by definition is equal to a slow fade-not sounding like the life you were designed to live, is it?  If you are living a life where you are working too hard and not being smart about what’s going on around, you are drifting through life. Author and motivational speaker, Michael Hyatt, spoke about living a “designed” life vs. a “default” life. A “designed” life is where you are intentional about where you want to go and what you need to be doing with regards to your life. With this being said, you need to be able to answer these 3 questions:
