For quite some time now multitasking has been a buzz word and many people strife to be masters of multitasking. However, it has been proven that there is not really such a thing as multitasking. Our brains simply are not capable of doing more than one thing at a time. In reality what actually happens is that although we are trying to do two or more things at the same time we are only switching back and forth between the various tasks. This requires a lot of concentration and often, instead of being more productive, we end up making more mistakes and this in turn causes us a great deal of stress. Eventually we become less able to really focus our attention on one thing in particular.
One of the key factors of success in anything is the ability to focus on the task at hand, but also on our goals. To help us achieve focus it is a good plan to make meditation a part of our routine. Just five minutes of dedicated meditation can help us to clear our minds and realign our focus. Meditation does not have to be linked to any specific religion, but it is simply being quiet and being present in the moment. It is to clear your mind of all the clutter whizzing through it at the speed of light. What often helps is to find a thought or an idea to repeat in your mind while you are quiet and present in the moment. Many refer to this repetitive thought, word or idea as a mantra, but this in turn has a religious connotation for many people and thus they veer away from it. I prefer to think of it as a positive affirmation.
Repeating this affirmation guides our thoughts and helps us to focus on the positive. It can become the motto or catch phrase of your life and when you think it or say it out loud it can immediately reset your alignment in accordance with your goal. It can be as simple as "I can do this", or "I believe it will be so" or it can be a specific scripture such as "Be still, and know that I am God". Quotes are great affirmations to think about. Write your quote, word or thought down where you can see it and be reminded of it often. Engrave it on your mind and soon your life will begin to reflect that thought. It is a great way to inspire yourself to be a better version of you.
I leave you with this scripture:
Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV)
For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
