Are You Addicted to Getting Things Done?
Are you addicted to getting things done? Do you believe after you get everything done you will be living the good life on a beach sipping pina collada’s? Most of us are guilty of believing if we want to succeed in life we have to be continually setting goals and obsessively working toward them as quickly as you can. Your mind is always fast forwarding to what is next creating impossible stress, negativity and a sense of loss in you life.
Goals and achievements are necessary in life but become problematic when you delay your happiness in favor of being happy later. When does later come? The problem with constantly focusing on getting things done and moving on to the next thing is it takes its toll on your mind and body. Time to slow down and bring your mind into the present.
Ironically, taking a slower path and putting your focus fully on what you are doing will help you to be more mindful and more successful. The next time you find yourself on the, “I gotta do it”, roller coaster stop and ask yourself the question if it is “working for you?” Ask yourself the question if what you are doing is in alignment with your integrity? Breath, become in tune with your environment. Being present will help you enlist your subconscious mind to be more creative, charismatic and happy.
