Sometimes I feel like there’s an endless amount of stuff to do and I can never catch up. It’s become commonplace to have 50 different things flashing in my head at once. The flashes look like a collage of images–all referencing stuff I have to get done. As of late, I’ve been getting things done even with this mental madness, but it’s taking me far too long to execute and consuming way too much energy.
So I’m taking action to change.
Last Friday morning I read a powerful blog post by Rob White called Atomic Action. In short, Atomic Action is about getting stuff done and moving on to the next thing; all with total focus and without feelings of burden or stress. I started the read with the idea that my level of taking action was optimal…but reality hit me like a ton of bricks. I do in fact take action, but too often I have poor focus in concentrating on one thing at a time; I multi-task with just about everything.
