Most people think running around as fast as they can trying to get things done, doing multiple things at once, results in more efficiency and productivity. You would be surprised to learn that when rushing you are actually creating inefficiency and lack of productivity? How many details do you overlook and wrong decisions do you make when you’re on turbo speed? Then, ask yourself how much time it takes you to go back and correct all the errors that were made?
The fact is, we accomplish a lot less when we’re in a hurry and dividing our attention between several different things at one time. The reason for this can easily be explained from an energetic point of view. You would naturally assume that the faster you are going, the faster your energy vibration, and therefore, you are attracting the same faster, higher vibration of the things around you. This type of raised vibration is aligned with happiness, peace, joy, and a general ease of flow to life. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
The truth is that our bodies and minds working at a breakneck pace is experienced on a frequency that is very low and slow. This means that we align ourselves with other things that are of a low vibration, like anger, fear, worry, and frustration. When we’re rushing around and not being mindful of our thoughts and actions, we are creating more of what we’re trying to avoid. This is when mistakes happen, decisions are poor, and nothing seems to go right.
Take a moment throughout your day and ask yourself if you feel centered or off-balance. If you feel centered, then you’re calm, in control of your emotions, and aware of everything that’s happening around you, which you are able to handle with efficiency. If you feel off-balance, then you are scattered, stressed, and everything you touch turns into a big mess…one thing goes wrong, then another, then another until you wish you hadn’t gotten out of bed that day!
Resist the urge to be “busy” and in the beginning of your day take the time to organize a to-do list. Put things on the list according to it’s priority. Then do as much as you can to focus on that one thing until it is properly and excellently accomplished. Doing that for each line item on your to-do list will leave you feeling more effective and accomplished!
