Wherever You Are, Be There

Wherever you are, be there. You are where you are for a reason. Don’t ignore it, explore it. We don’t see what is around us because we are too busy to see it, to enjoy it. You are too busy to enjoy your wife. You are too busy to enjoy your life. You are too busy to read more books. You are too busy to take care of your body. You are too busy to go to your best friend’s birthday.

When are you going to slow it down?

It is time to slow down. It is time to evaluate your life. Why? Because if you don’t check what you are doing to yourself, to your life, to the people around you, you will continue with your busy life. Before you do anything, before you take on a new assignment, ask yourself, “Is it necessary?” Do not just do something to look good. Do something because it is necessary, but not urgent. Stop living your life on the road. Slow it down.

Slow your busyness down. If you want to live a better life, you must give yourself a full attention. When you are with yourself, be there. When you are with your wife, be there. When you are playing with your children, be there. When you are eating, just eat. When you are working, be there. Because every moment is important. Every moment is special. Enjoy it.

Spend quality time with yourself. Spend quality time with your soul. Do not take on more than you can do. Do not take on what you cannot do. Do not promise people what you don’t have. It is better. Take time to rest, to think, to read, to just connect with nature. Remember, you are not going to be here forever, so enjoy every moment of your life. Start now.

The Dark Side Of Multitasking, According To Research

“Until we can manage time, we can manage nothing else.”- Peter Drucker

Happiness comes from doing what is in front of us. We try to multitask ourselves, but it is hard to do. We think we are ready for it, “but research has shown that our brains are not nearly as good at handling multiple tasks as we like to think they are.”

If you really want to enjoy your life, if you want to enjoy your work, focus on one thing at a time. Don’t listen to those who brag about how good they are at doing one trillion things at the same time. They are just bragging! Just bragging!

You are supposed to enjoy what you are doing, right? But if you engage yourself in multiple tasks at the same time, you are reducing the fun that comes from your work. If you are not enjoying your work, think about it. Ask yourself, “Is this job the right one for me?” If not, find a way to make it better. If you can’t make it better, it is time to move forward.

Doing multiple things at the same time is good, but not for everyone. Some people are good at it, others not. If you are not one of them, don’t do it. If you want to enjoy your work, focus on what is right in front of you.
