This thought came my way the other day.
“I attract to my life whatever I give my attention, energy and focus to, whether positive or negative”.
Sooo….if you are not happy with something in your life…
STOP giving it attention….energy….or focus!! Simply ask yourself, what DO I want to have happen?
Then give THAT more energy, attention, and focus. Seems simple…………..and IT IS!!
Personally, one of my favorite ways to focus attention on something I want to have happen is to write down how long I think it will take me to do it. If it is an unpleasant task, then realizing that it will only take me twenty minutes make it a lot easier to do. And if it is a task that I have had a hard time beginning because it seemed too large and scary, then putting a time limit on it, even if it is only enough to get started, somehow makes it manageable.
Next, keep track of how long it actually takes. Sometimes you’ll run way over. Sometimes you’ll finish quicker than you planned. Either way, you’ll find yourself not only understanding better how you spend your time but being able better spend the time that you have.
A fringe benefit of keeping track of how you spend your work time is that it makes it easier to relax when you are done. When your jobs are defined, they don’t run together into one big chore that lasts all day.
This strategy has made me feel better. I hope it works for you.
