We have basically 32 hours of free time. That is more enough time to finish 6 tasks. So what was stopping me? DISTRACTIONS. I am the kind of person who simply cannot work 15 minutes without getting distracted. Time isn’t the issue, I’ve got time, the thing is working efficiently and getting the work done. So how can I work efficiently to try to avoid stress? I started listing things up, things like: taking a five minute break every half an hour, closing facebook, twitter, tumbler, etc and turning my phone off, work in a quiet place with no distractions.
Finally it’s Sunday at 9:00 pm and I have managed to successfully finish all of the tasks I proposed to do. Actually I didn’t only finish them, but I also was able to revise them, and send them to a peer for a second opinion. I am really surprised that I was able to finish everything on time; it’s amazing what you can do once you propose to do it. I feel like the quality of my work is better too, I guess it’s because my mind works better when I’m only thinking at one thing at the time, instead or being distracted every five minutes.
So I guess that’s it. We use time as an excuse to cover for our laziness and distractions. Yes we can achieve almost anything we want, we just have to propose to do it.
