In this video, Trey Bearor discusses how to stay laser focused on the activities that need to get done versus distractions and multi-tasking. Here is a great activity to do to show you that your time is being wasted by doing too many things at once and how you can stay focused on one thing at a time and finish your to do list every day without feeling like you didn’t get A DAMN THING accomplished.
What’s up guys! My name is Trey and before we start this video,
can we just talk about how dope this shirt is?
Like $20 bucks from Target and American as f*ck. In this video, I’m gonna talk to you guys about TIME MANAGEMENT because so many people say they don’t have time
…and that is a bunch of bullsh*t.
Let’s start off with a little activity. Get a piece of paper and a pen and write these out. Be sure to time yourself. “Shut up you have time.”
That took 9 seconds.
Now write a number for each letter. So in this, there are 17 letters. Time yourself writing out the numbers 1-17. Go!
14 seconds. Not bad!
Now let’s do both at the same time. Write this out AND write out 1-17, and time yourself. Here we go..Almost a full minute!
So why did it take me twice as long to do the same amount of work?
One word: FOCUS
People think they’re such amazing “multi-taskers” or they can get so much done by having 5 tabs open on their internet browser. I call bullshit.
The reason the first two assignments got done faster is because I was laser focused on ONE THING. You start adding in more than one assignment to do, it’s taking you longer to do, you have to think where you left off, your brain is all over the place, you get frustrated.
And that’s what it’s like in life today..
Facebook notifications, emails, getting the kids ready for school, make yourself breakfast, running errands, and so on.
The reason you believe you don’t have time is because you aren’t focusing on one task at a time. Focus on the sh*t that needs to get done first & only focus on that. Then move onto the next assignment, and the next, and the next.
You’ll get a lot more done in less time and you won’t end the day feeling like you didn’t get a damn thing accomplished!
