Food For Thought: There is a Difference Between Moving Fast and Running

Food For Thought: There is a Difference Between Moving Fast and Running

Food For Thought: There is a difference between moving fast and rushing.

💡 Society often rewards speed with massive business growths (for entrepreneurs), career promotions (for the employee), and even our own personal belief that we’re doing something well. Naturally, as humans we are therefore inclined to want to be quicker, more efficient and more productive in anything we do.

But being more effective, efficient and productive at the expense of rushing things doesn’t help anyone do things better. If anything, it only increases our chances of being stressed and negatively affected.

So how does one then move fast without sacrificing long term sustainability❓

✅ Move fast by being thoughtful and mindful, because when we rush through things, we sacrifice thoughtfulness

✅ Conversely, when we are thoughtful but not moving fast, we may be overthinking, and this is procrastination in disguise.

✅ Eliminate distractions by being intentional in the choices made – this will allow one to do things the right way rather than just try to complete them as quickly as possible.

✅ Remember, rushing implies desperation whilst moving fast means we retain urgency but with control and intention, and therefore reduce the risk of not reaching the end destination

💎 The little time we lose in decision making, we gain in execution 💎

Beat procrastination by using the 2 Minute Rule

Beat procrastination by using the 2 Minute Rule

💡 In my early stages of entrepreneurship, overcoming procrastination and laziness was hard. But after I deployed the two-minute rule, it couldn’t have been easier stop procrastinating and sticking to good habits at the same time.

The 2 Minute Rule is all about getting into new habits by kickstarting it with just two minutes of daily effort…

✅ The idea is to make our habits as easy as possible to start e.g. Anyone can meditate for two minutes, read one page, or kickstart their business with some level of effort.

✅ Once we start doing the right thing, it is much easier to continue doing it. Why❓ Cause a new habit should not feel like a challenge, and building momentum snowballs in the long run.

What we want is a gate way habit that naturally leads us down a more productive path.

✅ Remember, the point is to master the habit of showing up. The truth is, a habit must be established before it can be improved.

✅ Instead of being an engineer who perfects no habit from the start, do the easy thing on a more consistent basis. Standardize before optimising.

💎 Think about change as a way to getting started instead of being consumed by the end goal. Two minutes of effort is better than none at all 💎

An addiction to distraction is a killer to creative production

An addiction to distraction is a killer to creative production

💡 How often do we allow ourselves to get “distracted” so that we can avoid doing what we want to or have to do❓ This is also known as procrastination…

In my experience, both through studies and working with many people, to become successful, we need to dominate our daily life by producing masterpieces day-in-day-out through uninterrupted distractions…

How does one then nurture and cultivate productivity in the absence of distractions?

✅ Practice self-discipline by making changes that put an end to time-wasting habits

➡️ For the next 15 days, consider a time audit on what is done every 30 minutes, and identify whether the tasks are productive OR “merely busy”

✅ Often a lack of productivity and creativity is linked to us being stressed in not achieving our goals

➡️ To reduce stress, start creating an emotional link to your goals – this will help stimulate the right disciplines and actions.

✅ Lastly, get enough sleep and use the last hour before bed time as “down time”

➡️ Proper rest rejuvenates the brain and leads to bursts of creativity, so don’t underestimate getting enough rest if you want to be the next “hit” in the world❗️

💧 Creativity isn’t a rare gift enjoyed by the lucky few – it’s a natural part of the human brain and behaviour. Don’t let distraction kill your creativity 💧
