Join Dave Crenshaw for an in-depth discussion in this video Embrace the power of doing nothing, part of Time Management Tips Weekly.
- What would you say, if I asked you to do nothing?…Absolutely nothing.…Not read a book, not pull out your phone,…just sit there.…How long could you pull that off?…For most people, the idea of doing nothing is frightening.…The reason behind that is we live in a world…that is used to constant stimulation,…and our brains and our bodies have been conditioned…to constantly be in motion.…
Yet there's so much value in doing nothing.…Even being bored, occasionally, can be helpful.…This space of nothing gives you opportunity…to be more creative,…it gives you space for personal reflection,…and it can have the side benefit of reducing stress…in your life.…Let's talk about a few things that you can do…to begin getting a little more comfortable with nothing.…Number one is leave open space in your day.…
Now, I talk about the importance…of having buffer space between appointments.…This reduces the opportunity that you're going to multitask,…but it also has the side benefit…of giving you a little room to breathe,…a little room to do nothing.…
