Things have been super busy for everyone, lately, and I don’t think it’s going to calm down just yet. Recently “busy” is the most common word I hear out of people’s mouths when inquired, “how are you?”.
I asked a few people, especially the entrepreneurial types, if their definition of productivity included taking quiet times. Some people admitted that they just can’t stop, and even if they did, their minds were too busy. I’m guilty of this as well, and am trying to alter this attitude.
Luckily for me, my body demands me to stop at times and a short nap does wonders. More often than not, I receive some of my best ideas in these moments. I stop thinking!
The idea of being quiet and having creativity step in is not a new concept, and I’m not saying anything that hasn’t already been said, BUT, we seem to need to hear and see things over and over before we finally “get it”!! We need to trust that a few minutes away from all distractions, and perceived productivity, could actually enhance & increase our quality of work.
What do you think? Shall we try a few minutes now & then, and see what happens?
