January may be cold and grey but it is a great time for bringing about change. It's a time to take stock, make plans and maybe even come up with a New Year's Resolution. There are always so many suggestions around at this time of year... lose weight, get more exercise, dry January, take up a new challenge, but one of the best pieces of advice we've heard is DON'T multitask! It is far better to do one thing well by allocating a time slot and focusing on a task completely. Answer your emails, send out invoices, cook a meal, play with the children, but don't attempt to do them all at the same time - you will feel stressed out and you will fail!
Stop time and do one thing well
The Art of Stopping Time. Image by PenguinThe Art Of Stopping Time is just one of many books that may give some insight into ways that you can bring about change. It's important to make your goals achievable and sometimes the simplest things can have a profound effect, like switching off your phone for a while (is that a gasp?) Don't forget to take a little time for yourself - chances are you have been running around after other people for the past few weeks so put yourself first even for a few hours... spoil yourself.
