One Thing At A Time

One Thing At A Time

This month I've been researching and practicing the act of doing one thing at a time.

I've learned a lot about multi-tasking, which I know is really task-switching.  As I delve deeper into my own way of catching myself moving way too fast and doing too many things at once – I'm learning a lot about the negative effects it has on my task list and my life; but mostly I'm learning a whole lot about myself.

What I discovered is that when I really slow down and do one thing at a time, my mind gets a little irritated.  

It says, 

Ready for a Breakthrough?

Ready for a Breakthrough?

We all have those times in our lives when we KNOW that a shift is taking place. 

We get a small or HUGE hint or message to make some kind of change.

Sometimes it shows up as an inkling to try something new,
Sometimes it shows up as a physical symptom or even pain,
And sometimes it shows you a new way of doing something or a bright idea –

Either way, I've got your solution.

And it's not just, go to bed earlier...

These Two Ingredients Make a Great Morning.

For as long as I can remember, I've always been a morning person.

Turned On and Tuned In

Last night was my night to cook, and I was really craving a lot of different fresh foods.  I wanted to incorporate them into a delicious meal that wouldn't be a headache -- and that my family would also enjoy.

So I made a bit of this, and a bit of that.
