To Educate & Inform People – People Helping People.

Concentrate on one thing at a time.

When you have a lot to do, it’s tempting to multi-task. But you’ll actually get more done if you concentrate on one thing at a time. In this video I explain why focusing your attention is more productive than trying to handle multiple priorities simultaneously. You’ll come to appreciate the wisdom from Norman Vincent Peale: “When every physical and mental resource is focused – one’s power to solve a problem multiplies tremendously.”

How can you structure your day to eliminate distractions and concentrate on one priority at a time?

“Just say ‘No’ to others and to yourself when you find you are being tempted to deviate from your priorities.” – Chin-Ning Chu, American author

“The effectiveness of work increases according to geometrical progression if there are no interruptions.” – André Maurois, French author

“Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all your energies on a limited set of targets.” – Nido Qubein, American professional speaker and author

Prioritising your life especially your day-to-day activities is important. If you don’t do this it can’t be measured. If it can’t be measured it can’t be calculated and if you can’t calculate it you wont know if you are moving forward of backwards. Regards. Shaun Douglas shaun.douglas@mysmartmindset.com
