Most people try to do way too much.
And their lives end up getting taken over by unnecessary activities, busywork and an array of “crap” that prevents them from doing what is important.
They waste their most valuable commodity – time – responding to false urgency while ignoring what’s truly important.
Sure, they’re super busy…but they’re not nearly as effective as they could and should be.
They’ll tell you they’re “great at multitasking.” Except, once you spend some time studying the human brain and how it works, you realize that multitasking does not exist.
It’s true. The brain can only focus on one thing at a time. And if someone thinks they’re doing multiple things at once, what they’re actually doing is bouncing back and forth really fast among a variety of tasks … and chances are, none of them gets done as well as it could have been with just a wee bit more focus.
Think about someone in your life who claims to be a great multitasker. Are they always stressed out and exhausted? Hmmm … I wonder why.
Don’t fall into the busy trap.
Stop trying to do too much.
When it comes to transforming your body and health, Focus wins over Activity every time.
The people who are successful at being fit and healthy for the long term narrow their focus and spend their time on the small things that matter … and they delegate, eliminate, minimize or systemize the rest.
If you want to be happier and healthier, the key is to be better at fewer things … not mediocre at many.
You have to be effective … not just busy.
So narrow your focus on the handful of things that really matter and get really good at those. You’ll be surprised by how many things that used to take up so much time weren’t nearly as important as you thought they were.
