The Antidotes To Our ‘Being Busy’ Tendencies

  1. Prioritize high-impact tasks that actually matter. These tasks should be 80 per cent of what we do.
  2. As for choosing a task, find the meaning and purpose behind it, and then connect to it.
  3. Focus on one small task at a time, not doing any multitasking and becoming fully one with the task at hand.
  4. Break down big tasks into smaller tasks.
  5. Let go of the narratives that are causing fear and anxiety, most of which are false and are adding unnecessary worry to your day. Simply pop them like a soap bubble!
  6. Focus with full presence, gratitude and meaning.
