For me this book, made me really think about the reasons why I say “busy” when someone asks me how I am. It is a sobering read inviting you to consider how our habits get in the way of the work we really want to be doing. With lots of practical advice, I am currently trying to rewire my habits (it hurts!). So where have I starting:
- Doing the hard stuff first thing – rather than being lured into thinking that getting something quick and easy off my list will give me impetus.
- Not believing the myth of multitasking. I can get easy distracted by something new and shiny but I resist the urge and focus on finishing what I started.
- Stopping judging myself that reading and watching videos that may not help me get something crossed off the list isn’t useful.
