Pretty straight forward and to the point. In fact, stop browsing all of those websites you have open. Close out Twitter. Mute your phone. Shut down Facebook. Stop wasting time, at least for a few minutes. I know you are human and well, I am addicted to Twitter too.
But go outside. Take a walk. Smell the roses. Pet the dog. Stretch your legs, clear your mind, and let the juices flow. Just go. Take 5 minutes. Oh, and leave your phone here.
Back? Good. Feel better? Perfect.
It is amazing how problems seem to find solutions when thinking clearly, without the distractions of email, the phone and other distractions.
Creativity begins to flow when the mind is uninhibited.
I cannot tell you how many times that I would face significant issues at work, beating a dead horse for hours on end, trying in vain to find a solution that simply did not seem to exist. It wasn’t until I got in the car, turned on the radio, rolled down the windows, and drove home. No phone calls, no email, no twitter, no Facebook. Just me, some background music, traffic and my thoughts. Boom. The solution, or steps to come to a solution, would suddenly seem so easy.
Day 1. Way 1. Stop being distracted and let your mind exist uninhibited. The things you will be able to accomplish in your life will amaze you.
