Stop, Change, Start!
This is one that has
really helped me be more focused. Example: I am at my desk working
away very deep in what I am doing and the phone rings. I can
choose to ignore it and have voice mail get it or I can answer
If you are not here 100% right
now, either stop what you were doing
I decide to answer it. I must STOP what
I am doing, CHANGE modes and Focus on this new task and START
the new task of talking on the phone and giving that task 100%
of my attention.
I find that when I do this, I can be on
target with each task that I do. And I find it easier to return
to a task when I have delineated between them. In this way I
get to concentrate on each task 100% and therefore I don't miss
anything or have dangling details that can get lost, missed or
and be here or stop this and get back to where you were.
