Hello, fellow learners. Along with my business word of the year (PREPAY in case you didn’t see an earlier post), the number for 2017 is 1, One, Uno, Un. Many people see multi-tasking as a talent (me included until recently). However, in reality multi-tasking really means not focusing on one thing. Even though we have become quite skilled at doing multiple things at the same time, is that giving each task our best? This year, I am going to focus on ways for us to give 100% (well, ok, maybe 96%) of our time to the person with us or to the task at hand. I’m sure you know people who talk to you at a party and make you feel like you are the only one in the room. (I’m sure you know others who look beyond you at parties too, but let’s focus on the positive.) Make room for the important tasks and people in your life by dedicating your most precious gift – your time exclusively and without distractions.
This year is a focus on how we can give our gifts of time in the best ways. Combining time with 2017’s number of ONE, try to dedicate ONE HOUR of alone time to what makes you very happy. Let’s say you are at home for one hour, and you are not allowed to do any work. How could you spend that hour alone doing something you crave to do. Where does time disappear for you? Where do you get lost in what you are doing, and you can’t believe how time flew by? We’ll work up to one hour each day, but for now dedicate one hour per week to your happiness. For me, sewing and crafting are the tickets, but have fun with your hour.
OH – One Hour. Go. Have fun.
I’d love it if you could share what your happy hour looks like.
