The Top 10 Time Management Lies We Tell Ourselves

The Top 10 Time Management Lies We Tell Ourselves | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

Time, as we all know, is a finite resource and some use the time we have available far better than others, with the result that they achieve more, and obtain a greater share of the spoils of success.

 

There are also an infinite number of suggestions, that one can find to pursue, in order to improve one's time management. Sometimes these will not be effective unless we first overcome our own self talk we use to justify why we don't effectively use the time we all have available.

 

This good article, outlines a whole litany of lies some of us tell ourselves, and it suggests that those who continually deceive themselves through these lies should question them every time they find themselves using them. 

 

Thanks Daniel Watson.

Mindfulness: an antidote for workplace ADD | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

Anne Egros's insight:

It takes more and more energy to focus due to the increase in speed and amount of information we receive everyday. Unlesss you live in a cave or an island without connnection, distraction is unavoidable. 

 

Even if we are very good at practicing mindfullness meditation, it is like a red light. it works to stop you in the moment...until the ligh turns green again.

 

I am always annoyed when people use the term "ADD" to describe a lack of concentration. Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a medical disorder describe in the DSM IV book. It is described as a neurological condition or a kind of immaturity of the brain, that can be corrected with medication mostly stimulants. Medication is only working when you take it. When you stop you still have ADD and its symptoms come back right away. That is the only common thing between meditation and medication !
