The reality is that we can only focus on one thing at a time. Multitasking is a myth. So we’re either focusing on the most important thing or something less important. The clearer we see and remember that, the easier it is to stay motivated to focus on one thing at a time.
Yes, very. Meditation has helped me notice the story I tell myself about why I should focus on more than my top three priorities. Actually, it’s helped me mono-task overall.
Personally, I focus on establishing AT LEAST three tasks, the most important ones, the one's that come to my mind the second I asked myself "what do I HAVE TO do?". Once three written, I reflect on whether there is something else I really REALLY need to do. Whatever comes to mind, wasn't one of the three things I thought about before, so it isn't as important, most likely. The to-do list is a way of highlighting the real important stuff, so we don't saturarte the list with little things. It you feel the need for it to be four or five, and not three, I think it is OK as long as they keep being really important things.
It was very hard the past two days because I had a stomach virus, but now I’m better! Sometimes I might be late for my habits and routines because I have a very busy schedule. But overall, it’s not that difficult!
Focusing on 3 things in a routine is much easier than filling the list up with everything you hope to do. Example: If you are just starting, only have 2 or 3 habits. When you can finish those for a month solid, add 1 more.
